Smiles for Sunday
In all my many years of making squirrel friends, I have never been this close to this young of a squirrel before and this simple joy on my walk, made my day. It was one of those simple joys that makes my heart keep smiling long after that walk and it certainly helped get me through a difficult week. We had an Easter egg hunt last week, and it was as much fun for us older "kids" to hide the eggs as it was watching the little ones and bigger kids find them (this is Sophie, my great-neice, adding to her basket.) Another simple joy this week was watching the chorus and band at the high school, getting ready for their competition day, which was yesterday. I couldn't have picked a better spot to watch my daughter (Mary's right in the middle, front row!) But when the boys came out to join all the girls for their songs, it was harder to see her, they surrounded her, but I could see her smile as she sang...beautiful.
Psalm 128:5 May the Lord continually bless you with heaven's blessings as well as with human joys.
