This time last year I had peonies everywhere. This year the tree in my front yard doesn’t even have leaves on it yet!
I am going out with my running club this morning. It is one of the last runs of the spring session. I am considering not joining again for the summer – it is $200. and it is getting up at 4 a.m. or earlier every Saturday morning. I’ve got half-marathons on June 16, August something, and the end of September. I need to train….. I will decide in the next week or two.
For now I am going. My daughter is sleeping in the room she uses when she is fighting with her boyfriend. The weather is going to be fabulous. This afternoon one of my dear friends is having a party to celebrate her 30th AA birthday. Wow. I remember going to her 2nd anniversary. Amazing.
Gotta go. Have a beautiful day if you can. And if you can’t, I will not judge you for that. We can only do the best we can with what we have got and some times having a good day is so far out of our reach, it feels like a slap in the face to be told to have a nice day!!! Or even better “Make it a great day!” That all sounds cheerful unless you are in the midst of hell. OK – but I am not today!
Thanks be to God.
