It’s Spring Break week, and even with all the crap having to do with our break-in, we’re going ahead with our plans to be gone. We’re headed to the lakehouse, and taking Maria’s friend Caroline with us She also happens to be the daughter of friends I’ve known since we were about their age. It’s becoming a small, small world.
We have a house sitter staying there each night, and Tom Kargas will be there each day supervising flooring and painting that’s being done in three more rooms. And my folks are gonna check in on the dogs. So, we feel good about being gone, since the house will be well guarded.
So, for Spring Break, and for plans that happen at just the right time, 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.)
