A Saturday Morning

The sound of a workout video in the living room as my visiting daughter exercises, she has lost 102 lbs., looks like a model, I am so proud. Outside a snow blower whirls and swirls the snow, my daughter’s boyfriend helping my husband clear away the detritus of winter’s wrath. My other daughter and her fiancĂ©, soon to arrive, as my fingers click in time on the keyboard to the video. Our sweet Harley, asleep before the fire is peaceful and so am I. Life is good, very, very good, I am so blessed.
Now, if only someone else would clear away the breakfast dishes. Actually the full sink means we are all together. Time to clean the kitchen and be thankful for the task.

Saw this in the community newsletter 6 years ago when my fiance first moved here. I cut it out and kept it.

Thank God for dirty dishes,
for they have a tale to tell.
While others are going hungry,
we are eating very well.
With home and health and happiness,
I shouldn't want to fuss.
For by this stack of evidence,
God's been very good to us.
