Today I'm just living, as in focusing on each moment, especially the good ones, and not letting myself get swept away into the next one too quickly.
It's been a crazy, snowball week with lots of emotional ups and downs and too many hours away from home. I've lit three candles in the church in one week - that should tell you something.
Waking up to Friday was such a relief. And this has been a full day itself, of mostly good moments, including lunch with my middle son Daniel, a good phone conversation with TG, and now time with oldest son Tommy, home for the weekend. His girlfriend Kirby is pulling up even as I type this. Details will follow, but for now, after a movie and lots of catching up, it's time to call it a day.
I've taken tons of photos this week but haven't even had time to look at all of them.
It doesn't matter; the sight of Tommy sitting at the table would trump them all as my Friday Favorite... not the best photo technically or of him, but it reminds me of all I have to be grateful for...all the ups of the week rather than the downs.
(I wish the other 2/3 of my kids could be home this weekend, too, but they're finishing up finals - please say a prayer for them!)
Hope you've all had a happy Friday full of sweet memory-moments, too!
