This morning on my walk I came across a mother walking with her son who was maybe 2 years old. It had just finished raining and as they walked she shook a branch of a tree and the water drops fell down on to her son. He thought that was just the funniest thing and ran on up ahead just laughing a big ole belly laugh. It was the kind of laughter that kids do that just makes you have to laugh along with them. It was just so nice to hear and see that. :-)
I got another book read from the stack of books that I got from the library.
A quote from the book:
'It is better to cut your bare feet on the glass than never to feel the sand between your toes.
You should know that there is no comfort in knowing that you are existing instead of living. For a short while I lived. It was wonderful and agony. Bliss and pain. But I knew that I was living. I can tell the difference. Perhaps the only really contented people are those who have never lived at all. But I keep the painting to remind me that just once I took off my shoes and felt the sand between my toes.'
Cheryl - I put the book South of Broad by Pat Conroy that you recommended on reserve at the library. Take a guess what number I am on the list. 243!!! Isn't that crazy!?
They are still working on a row of 5 houses which are on the right as I walk out my front door. These should be finished in the coming week. This is the last row and I am really looking forward to them all being done.
I've been knitting on both the white squares and the ripple afghan.
The rain so far as not cooled things off as I had hoped. Maybe tomorrow.
It's still early in the day and don't know what the rest of the day will bring.
Hope you are enjoying your Saturday.
How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it.
