Good things . . .

Pumpkin posted in her blog about some of the good things in her life. I have been so harried lately, I haven't had a lot of time to stop and think about my blessings.

Brea is the major blessing of my existence. She's been there for me during the highest highs and the lowest lows--who else would have sat next to me having a meltdown in the Nashville Airport or kept me company on the phone on the way to Richmond the other night? I never say enough to her how grateful I am that God put her in my life, because there just aren't enough good words to say that. B, you truly are my sister of the heart and I am so honored that you chose me for a friend.

I am blessed that whoever is in charge of the universe decided I was worthy of being pet parent to my wonderful dogs and cats and sent them to me. Each and every one is a gem: Chancey for her thoughtfulness, Lily for her beauty, Gus for being my main man for all these years, Nikki for being so protective, Flicky for showing me that we all have a capacity to forgive. And my Robbie, who loves me well beyond unconditionally and whose coming taught me that there really is a red thread that connects those destined to be together.

I am also blessed that I have the ability to paint pictures with thread and needle. Some people use acrylics, some use oil, I work in floss.

Love you to my dear sister. :) I'm grateful we have a God that gives us the blessings just when we need them, and keeps them coming even after we thing that they are done.


I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
