Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a blessed weekend. Mine was…well, rather “normal” and isn’t that wonderful? I did have a few plans with friends that I needed to cancel (or shall I say postpone?) but, all in all, life here at home felt the most normal that it has in weeks – and I’m thrilled. Normal is looking good:) I did have one friend visit on Saturday afternoon and that was wonderful. Two hours of just chatting. Oh so nice. And she came bearing lemon flavored Oreos! Have you ever tried them? I had actually never heard of them and I will admit that I was a skeptical. I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to Oreos but these were quite tasty. The lemon was very mild and the whole thing was just light and very spring-like:)
Speaking of spring, we have had so many more blooms lately. I know all of the nay-sayers are sure that a winter storm is still lurking somewhere “just around the next corner” but I disagree. I think we have been blessed with the mildest winter ever and, now, spring is actually on its way! And I could not be happier.
I have a friend coming over today. We have been friends – besties – for over five decades. I am so blessed! We don’t live as close anymore (still in the same state but it seems much further) but she is in town for a few days. I am so looking forward to this afternoon. She is also bringing her service dog in training. She is training the sweetest lab (in a two year program) that will eventually be given to a wounded warrior. Her dog goes literally everywhere with her. I’m excited to meet him as well:) Am I supposed to greet him…in the silly goofy (playful) way that we usually greet dogs? I’m not sure. I mean, is he always working?? I guess I will find out.
Typically, I like to include a verse – for encouragement, for instruction or both – on Mondays but I recently read this quote from Dwight Moody and have been mulling it other often every since reading it. So, let me share it today. Let me know your thoughts. I will plan to share mine later this week…probably on Friday as I hope to share my monthly Currently post on Wednesday. I hope you will come back for those posts. Have a wonderful week. And, here is the quote:
“Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at something that doesn’t really matter.” ― D.L. Moody
