Monday


I try hard to take Mondays off.

On this cold, crisp Monday morning, I'm going to take my usual walk, do several loads of laundry, read, write and knit. It will be a relaxed day, hopefully, and the time will go by quickly.

Positioned for gratitude, I'm going to be open to pleasant conversation, intriguing reading, birdsong, hot beverages.

Anything to move out past the lonely, quiet house and a heart that still mourns other losses in addition to a good, good dog.

((Jennifer)) I wish you were here so we could take a nice long bike ride and then drink tea and knit and chat...or, I was there (except its probably too chilly for the bike ride)

I wish we could get together and talk. I hope your day was pleasant. (((Jennifer)))

PS A few minutes ago, my husband looked at the two comments on my blog post about C, and I was happy that I could tell him that you and Diane are my minister FRIENDS from the northern midwest.

p.s. re your comment on GG's post: I am currently having your experience of people (congregants and fellow pastors) expecting me to pastor myself as I play pastor to all of them! (it sucks! sorry you had to go thru your losses that way)
