Today: Tuesday started with a smile. Jonathon wasn't home last night, so Emily and Emma spent the night. I loved having them here. The newlyweds made it 13 months without staying apart -- certainly longer than RB and my 7 months. It was 1976...We were traveling with the quartet and stopped at West Virginia Camp. It was a 4-H campground, so the lodging consisted of girls' dorm and boys' dorm...
At My Writing Desk: Yesterday I finished my goals for other people (The Banner article: The Cleaning of a Wintered Heart), but my personal goals didn't get done. I'm starting with them today, and will work on curriculum this afternoon. "Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn't wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say" (Sharon O'Brien). I'm eager to know what I'm going to say!
In the Mail: A letter from Vanessa. Sweet Emma hand delivered a note when she came last night, along with a green rubber band bracelet.
Praying for: My friend, Denise, as she has treatments for cancer.
Thankful for: Our friend Ben's successful heart cath and stent insertion yesterday.
Creating: Pig envelopes -- I'll post pictures tomorrow.
I'm reading: I finished "Girl of the Limberlost." I read this book over forty years ago, and the re-read was like meeting an old friend.
Postmarking: Wrote five notes/cards.
Favorite Quote: From my 7-year-old granddaughter -- "I was afraid I wouldn't get my goals done, so Daddy prayed with me and it worked!"
