"Thank you for "good things". Thank you for Oreos. Thank you for "Sweet Rewards". Thank you for the color blue. Thank you for the # 9." SAB 8-30-1997
As you may have noticed, I have once again been overwhelmed by the day to day demands of life. Writing seems to have slipped to the bottom of the "to do" pile, but my thoughts never drift too far from all that I have to be grateful for.
Today is Maw Maw's Heaven Day. I miss her. I find it hard to believe that she has been with Shannon for two years.
We move through life. We celebrate. We laugh. We anticipate. We participate. We appreciate. But in the quiet moments, the moments that are ours alone... we miss and long for and wish for another day... another hour, another minute, that missed opportunity... a rewind, reset, redo, revisit.
Printing programs for the wedding on Saturday... thinking, remembering, happy, sad and tired.
Tomorrow, perhaps, I will rediscover my momentum and return to the routine that includes writing about and illustrating the things that really matter. For now, I'm grateful to be home.
"Thank you for Maw Maw. Thank you for Mom. Thank you for Shannon. Thank you for songs that carry you to familiar places. Thank you for Jules." JJB 8-30-2010
