Day 39: Solitude

Warm weather + flip flops + quiet time to write = me happy as a clam.


Day 40: Change

Saturday: 75 degrees and sunny. Sunday: 55 degrees and rainy. Monday: 40 degrees and snow?!? Ah, the changing weather of spring.


Day 41: Hope

Hope is a light in the darkness, a kind of optimistic prayer.


Day 42: Commitment

“Commitment is an act, not a word.” ―Jean-Paul Sartre
These two dogs sure are committed to getting a tossed tennis ball.


Day 43: Holy

This little guy has made himself at home on our bathroom window ledge for the past few days. I’ve decided to name him Rusty.
“For everything that lives is holy, life delights in life.” – William Blake


Day 44: Transcend

April 17, 2004
“Love knows no limits, but ardently transcends all bounds.” – Thomas à Kempis


Day 45: Surrender

“Surrender to what is.”
We just found out that Jobe has Cushing’s disease. The prognosis is fairly good with a lifetime of medication so I am surrendering to what is and hoping that the medication will help him heal.
