A Bringer of New Things

Lovely Moments

Lovely moments from my life this week…

* Pulling weeds in my father-in-law’s garden on Sunday while he hoed and my husband plowed

I had asked my husband what we should get his dad for Father’s Day, and he had said, “ All he likes is hard work.” So that’s what we gave him!

But it was a gift to me as well—getting my hands into nature rejuvenated my spirit. 

* Getting a massage for self-care after a week of dealing with extra fatigue and stress

* Drinking rooibos chai tea (hot) and Bigelow’s Plantation Mint tea (iced)

* Listening to one of my favorite songs by Train: “Parachute”

“I’ll open up and be your parachute / and I’ll never let you down / So open up and be my human angel / and we’ll only hit the ground — running”

* Letting my cat Marvin share my pillow and lean his forehead on mine

* Talking with a friend I haven’t gotten to talk to in a long time
