The Remains of the Day 2015

When my alarm when off this morning at 5:30 I did not want to get up but I knew that if that twenty-two pound turkey was going to be done by lunch time I had to get it in the oven and fast. I went down and made a pot of very hot, strong, black coffee and sat alone in the house with my sad-eyed dog and somewhere in the basement Bennie the cat.

My table was full twice today with two different groups of family and an extra visit from a family that is very special to me. There was laughter and lively conversation along with the abundance of food and if I look over my shoulder at the table and the bar where the food was laid out earlier I would see a total mess, and I admit to you that I am not going to get up and clean it all up tonight!

If I were to begin to make a list of all the wonderful things for which I have to be thankful, it would have to begin with the faithful beautiful pearlescent full orb that was peeking through my window a few minutes ago. Whenever I look at that wonderful moon I always think of Psalm 8, verses 3 and 4 say,

I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous,

    Your handmade sky-jewelry,

Moon and stars mounted in their settings.

    Then I look at my micro-self and wonder,

Why do you bother with us?

    Why take a second look our way?

I am very grateful for answered prayers, and as I say that I remember a song we used to sing that said, “You can’t hurry God you just have to wait, He may not come when you want Him but he’ll come on time!”

I don’t know why He loves me but I know that He sees me as I sit here alone in the house with my sad-eyed dog and somewhere in the basement Bennie, the cat.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!

    I think the most wonderful feeling in all the world is to know He loves me and I don’t know why either, but I know that He does and what a warm fuzzy feeling that is. Nothing like it! It doesn’t even matter at all if no one else loves me. :o)
