Ruby Tuesday, My World, Midweek Blues
and Miscellaneous Monday Memes are
in Monday's Multi-tasking post below.
Herein are my Morning Musings and
1. I can't hear 'surf' this morning, but the ocean's scent washed over me when I opened the windows & doors a while ago. Living at the beach is a blessing I seldom take for granted, but mornings like this make me smile with recognition and gratitude first thing.
2. After having my sleep interrupted Saturday and Sunday night, I'm grateful the 'vacation renters' next door didn't party on the deck late into the evening last night. I feel rested this morning and glad I talked to them about the 'noise' issue.
3. I enjoyed catching up with friends at yesterday's Retired Gals Lunch. We visited longer than usual and it was about 2:30 when I headed out to run errands. Molly's DELIGHTED to have her favorite 'Duck & Sweet Potato' cookie treats from Natural Balance and a few new toys too. Maybe I'll take her to Dog Beach later to run free & play with fur-friends.
4. Hearing of Eunice Shriver's passing this morning, my heart goes out to her family & friends. Her presence on this earth will be missed by many but her contributions are many and her legacy endures.
5. This morning's email from Simple Truths contained a link to this brief inspirational video about the power of encouragement based on the book Even Eagles Need a Push by David McNally. If you have three & a half minutes, it's worth clicking the link to watch ... now or later. Perhaps you'll pass it along as I've done ... just because.
"The Push. Sometimes we need it ... sometimes we need to give it. It can be the greatest gift you ever give. It will change a life forever." Mac Anderson, Simple Truths.com

as you see I don't
stay within the lines
'linear' is challenging
I think in odd shapes
following my hand
where it leads to discover
what I do not know
