Things I Love 9 October 2019

Things I love:

Laffy Taffy, birds at my feeder, and pumpkin cookies. I love devotions in the early morning. Jobs finished and done well. Baby calves finding their legs for the first time. A horse’s warm breath on my neck on a cold morning. Students who submit work that surprises and delights me. Struggling students who reach out for help or respond when I reach out.

I love possibility and joy. Dark chocolate with sea salt and caramel. Ice-cream and lots of it. Hot fudge and a spoon, maybe with some salted peanuts. Broccoli and fresh green beans. Spaghetti squash with meat and a little sauce and some homemade sourdough garlic toast.

I love smiles and laughter and cute babies, well, any babies. Kindness and generosity. A gentle spirit. Helping someone find their way. A friend who knows just what to say or how to listen. Fall and winter. And God who created and didn’t make any mistakes.
