After a long and tiring week I always
look for the beauty at the end of each day.
Hidden treasures that I somehow overlooked.
Sometimes I have to look very hard and they are very small
they are always there just waiting to be found.
I stand at my kitchen sink it seems like at least a hundred times a day
I can see the pool in the backyard through the window.
I think about drifting across the water on my float and watching the clouds go sailing by.
I wonder if floating is good exercise because I am going to do a lot of it.
Today the water is so cold
it will soon be warm!
Yesterday I said hello to flip flops, pretty nail polish and Capri jeans.
I work in the garden too much without gloves to wear fingernail polish
I love polish on my toenails . Right now they are polished the color of the ocean.
The garden is just perfect.
It is a vegetarian and salad lover's dream!!!
The days have been warm and sunny
the nights cool and oh so dark.
Baby Gia learned to walk.
Oh, be still my heart.
I celebrated dewberry season by making a cobbler.
I can not tell you how many buckets of berries I picked as a child
how many jars of jam I helped my mama make.
I wish I could share it with her tonight.
Every time I look down at my feet
I can hear little Petra telling me,"I love your blue toes Nana!'
I looked up into the very blue sky
the moon was looking down at me.
I have not seen it in the daytime for a long time.
I used to tell my children when they were very small it was
The Children's Moon
because it came to say hello to them before their bedtime.
Dax and I have been counting the stars at night
and wishing upon them.
I have counted many but he tells me he has counted more than I have
as many as ten thousand
has made at least a hundred wishes.
Oh to be a child again!!
I wonder if the stars sing
when I look up at them my heart sings.
Job 38:7 NIV
while the morning stars sang together
all the angels shouted for joy
