It was a beautiful day
Because the sun came out and the sky was blue and it was warm enough to walk
Because someone called to chat
Because I had 9 kids at our afterschool program
Because 3 of them were "ours" and 6 others chose to be there.
Because I called a bunch of people and asked them to come eat soup, and some did
Because Janice made soup and brought pies, and Mark brought fruit salad,
Because we still had just enough food
Because I saw a friend I hadn't seen all winter
Because the Spirit had my back
Because there was a lot of laughter and interesting talk around the table
Because Tim liked the corn beef I fixed for dinner for him and the boys
Because tomorrow Caleb is 15
Because I got to see my mom.
And tomorrow will be another beautiful day.
