my to-do list

 Today I will...

walk in the cold rain,

play a game because they want to,

pretend I hadn't actually scheduled a math lesson,

make something gooey and sugary and delicious and not healthy at all,

refill the bird feeders for the newly arrived and very chatty chickadees,

begin a new book...Henry James, I think or maybe Dante,

maybe, perhaps, hopefully, start another letter,

savor each moment he's home from work,

pray and give careful thanks for each one of you, my friends.


Happy Thanksgiving!

May your day be full of the joy and peace of Christ.
