A few things. Call it potpourri.
1). I have a stove, but no running water in my kitchen. Rob had to crawl around in a nasty hot crawl space to work on gas line and plumbing. He mentioned a moment of panic at 2:30 a.m. the night before last when he got himself a little too wedged in the tight spot. Fortunately, he was able to extricate himself. YIKES!!!! I, of course, was sound asleep dreaming of my new kitchen.
2). My brother made a new video Man Vs. Tool and I'm posting it here. Funny.
3). Fresh Air summer camps are coming to an end and we all need a reminder to pray for people who have tough lives. And to do what we can to help. Video #2.
4). Dogs. Lily plays dress-up and 23 is house sitting with Murphy. Don't know that I've ever seen a more comically put together dog!!!!
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
