Currently. As I type this, it is Tuesday night – March 7th – which is/was my dad’s birthday. I’ve thought of him often throughout the day. I love this photo of him with my mom. It is amazing all that we “pick up” from our parents – intentionally or otherwise. My dad was a teacher through example and what a role model he continues to be – especially during challenging and hard times. I often wonder what he would say or, even more, how would handle some of the things on my plate just now. And, in many ways, I know because I watched him. I’m grateful for his example and inspiration.
Now onward for this month’s Currently post. This month we are considering all things loved, started, finished, tried and going. The rest of the link-up can be found here. Check those out…..after you finish this one, of course:) Let’s get started. Currently, I am….
loving – all the spring blooms – even the smelly Bradford pears that I love so much despite their unique fragrance:) Also loving the busy birds (another sign spring is in the air), the return of DST (longer evenings), clean and shiny windows (my husband has gotten a bit of a spring cleaning bug), tea in the morning (coffee was disappointing me lately) and tea with scones….even better! I have also loved visits from friends lately. No real agenda – just friends sharing laughs and life over tea, or soup, or something with dark chocolate! What’s not to love??:)
starting – a cold. WHY? You know how you can feel the drip. Just ever so slightly. You were if a cold is coming on but before you can really think too long – bam – you are completely congested and your head feels like a brick. UGH. I truly believe my immune system has completely given up being any assistance to me whatsoever.
finishing – my latest Bible study. Well, very soon. This study of (the first part of) Exodus has been excellent. But, as much as I love the studies, I so enjoy the group of ladies that meet on Tuesday mornings. I love our discussions as well as our friendships. What a group of prayer warriors! I am excited to see what we study for the rest of the semester.
trying – to get caught up reading blog posts. There is definitely a snowball effect and the more that “I miss,” the snowball not only grows but is rolling downhill away from me. And I cannot catch up. I read the current posts but really want to go back and read all that I missed (like the entire month of February!) but it has not proved easy.
going – nowhere. At least, as far as going anywhere that would require packing an overnight bag. So sadly. I had reservations for a girls getaway this weekend and was supposed to be leaving in the morning, but one of the girls is sick. There is a flu/bronchitis strain going around (apparently) that is quite the kicker. As in, kick in the pants. I have heard of some who had it and felt horrible for ten days! Ugh. I really hope my friend feels better…even today. I am “going” to (yet another!) doctor appointment today. Sigh. But, no packing necessary!
Happy Wednesday, friends! I’d love to hear from you. Share your best immune boosting tip with me!!
