Brand New

I walked to the lake this morning
and 
was the only one there.
It was 41 degrees outside and sunny.
I do not use my phone while walking.
It is turned off.
It is my time to think, pray and be inspired.


The first time I came to this park was in 1981.
There was a skinny sidewalk around the lake and I waked it with my Mother.
Lauren was in a stroller.
We were on vacation , visiting from Memphis.

I am so blessed to live here now.
Walking from my house to this glorious park!

This park is a bird sanctuary now
and
I saw 3 blue heron feeding today.
They were beautiful.

Isn't it interesting how one hour alone...
with no interruptions, can make you feel brand new?
AND
it is Friday!
Happy Friday where ever you might be....
Love you.

Memories Are Good

Matilda Joyce came over yesterday.
Lauren, Matilda and I went to the lake and fed the ducks.
It was sunny and warm.
The ducks were hungry!

After feeding the ducks,
 I watched Matilda play with other children on the playground
and I remembered.
I remembered when Lars & Jami were little
and
learning to socialize with other children.

I saw Matilda's face as little boy snatched away an acorn.
I saw her face when a little girl GAVE her an acorn
and
I smiled when Matilda hugged her.

Lauren looked on, not saying a word.

Was it yesterday that my girls were on this playground?
Funny.
I do not feel old and tired.
I feel happy and energetic.
Life is an amazing cycle.
The days are bright with the smiles of the ones I love
and
my heart sings remembering happy memories.

Past memories are good,
but making a memory is the BEST.

Have a wonderful Thursday!
Go make some memories today!
Love you.
Me
