at reciting all the things that are hard or wonky or pressing or irritating
through out the day...in my head.
Sometimes I say them out loud but mostly I just chatter silently to myself all the live long day about the things that I wish would go away or were different or that hadn't happened or that would happen and I take very little time to chatter about the things that I'm glad have come or are just the way they are or that have happened and such.
I've always thought that once you say things out loud
they are more real and bear more weight.
So I've decided to write a list...out loud...on the blog.
To remind myself of all the goodness that fills my days and really, should fill my mind.
So here we go. I should say these are in no particular order of importance.
1. vicks vapor rub (priceless in the war against allergies and colds...I like how it tingles)
2. dark chocolate
3. soft cotton
4. tomatoes from the garden
5. my boys smiles
6. Scott's humor
7. This line from Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry:
"But faith is not necessarily, or not soon, a resting place.
Faith puts you out on a wide river in a little boat, in the fog, in the dark."
(I have felt that - so amazing to read it.)
8. my bed
9. washing machines and dryers
10. the friendship of cousins
11. laughter from the gut
13. sprinkler systems
15. good story telling
16. dark coffee and strong tea
17. super girlfriends
18. summer plans with family
19. can openers that work
How about you?
