Today, I had lunch with an old friend named Gene at the Garden Cafe. The Garden Cafe is a great little restaurant, literally around the corner from the log house in East Dallas….I mean a block away. It’s been there for years, we lived in the neighborhood for years, taking our daughter to play in the park there, and never once did we eat there.
But Gene suggested we give it a try and it was awesome. Great to catch up with him too. Gene took the picture that inspired my song “Walk With Me” last Fall. I’ve been multi-tracking the song, as time permits, over the past few weeks, and so that made me wonder how he’s been.
It was great to catch up.
For the Garden Cafe, and old place I should have known a long time ago, and for Gene, I am thankful.
(During this year, my goal is to find something new to be thankful for every single day, and to add that thanksgiving as a blog entry, under the title “My Daily Gratitude.” I started this kick back around Thanksgiving, and it’s already resulted in a favorite new song of mine. The goal of this ongoing spiritual exercise is to see if doing such a thing might inspire even more gratitude within me, and to foster general awareness of life on a deeper level.)
