I love the list, but I love it more that I went back to check about your mom and saw that it wasn't cancer. I am so happy for you, for her and for all of your family. Big hugs!

Suz said...

oh, i loved this list!
So many of my favorites are on it i.e. crawling into bed under freshly laundered sheets * quiet reading evenings * fireflies * the smell of used bookstores* writing in my journal *the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies

Lovely list, lovely news about your mom. You're just a lovely soul, Relyn. That's the plain, old, unvarnished truth.

What a wonderful list, Relyn. We're going to have to meet up one day. Savannah would be the perfect place and quite do-able for me. Just let me know when!

mmmmm....smells like home
around here, too, friend.
thanks for sharing all the sweetness simmering in your lovely heart
and for that wonderful Linda song
and the magesty of that music
that moved me into rest last night
as I listened.
you're such a treasure, Relyn,
and this space you've built.
thank you,
Jennifer

yay for fog horns!!!

I have been hearing the one outside my bedroom window from time to time these last few weeks. That means fog. Which means cool air. Which means fall is coming!!!! yipee!!!

Oldies, but Goodies
