It's often the little things that bring satisfaction:
for years (10 at least) I had looked at the enamel colander with wistfulness.
I found one at the VNA rummage sale for a few dollars.
It, admittedly, has a bit of rust at the base, but I have already ascertained
that the way I wash it will not add to this issue.
I am quite happy with it!
A dear friend and former roommate, along with her parents, gave me this teacup
many years ago and now I have a matching teapot for it.
It was special to use and get out.
She also gave me the green teapot that I use most often, so
this is full of special memories...
I hope to write her a letter soon, as I got one recently from her! :)
I used a teabag quickly with the tea-ball leaning in the teapot this afternoon,
Love that these white plates work well in the mircrowave
and look great as serving dishes!
Used up candles that were nearly done today...
Had a special treat late in the day!
Had dinner with a friend,
it was so delicious!
I was 'responsible' and had a salad instead of fries :)
I am reading still Becoming a Healing Presence and the concept of time
and that if I see that time is not my own as something that can bring peace
is something I am pondering.
I am really liking this book and hope to re-read it.
I am thinking also, from this book, about living in the present moment,
I can't remember if I blogged about this already, but it is the
understanding that in the moment I am in, right now, presently, is
one of peace, is one that can be quiet or beautiful or a moment that tells me
that I am tired and need rest or food or a walk and in the moment
I can have peace by being present to it, with God
and that is something that is carrying me.
(As are your words of encouragement, prayers and kindness, thank you)...
