This morning I went to Zumba and had to stop on the way home to buy tomatoes at our little farmers market.
Of course I forgot to bring my wallet so I only had the change that was in the car.
I knew how many tomatoes I needed and that I didn’t have enough until that is I spotted a box marked “seconds”.
All the difference I could see were one or two little blemishes so I bagged what I needed and bought them.
Made me think that if I had searched for perfection I would have had to come back.
How often do we do that?
Is anything or anyone perfect? Of course they aren’t.
So accept that little blemish because beneath the surface it will be just as sweet.
Blessing# 13 – Seeing more than the surface
Thanks to my nephew and friend Krishna here is something that will take a few minutes to watch but is well worth it.
Krishna is a medical doctor in fact a pathologist and he is always on the hunt for great science stories that he shares with all his family and friends.
Hope you all are enjoying « The Cup » and that there will be one or two goals just as memorable as this one. This helps me see that a bend is a thing of beauty
Blessing # 12 People like Krishna with a passion to share and explain the wonders of science.
With the start of the World Cup we will all be rooting for our favorite teams.
This year Aaron has completed a Bracket. He had to predict the out come of each game including the score
If he wins he gets to go to the winning country. Chances of winning are probably a billion to one but it is fun.
Are you doing anything special?
BLESSING # 11 – Sports that bring us all together
There are some words that make me laugh and one of those is BOUFFANT.
It is an innocent enough word but for those of us who work in the food industry or in pharmaceutical or medical professions BOUFFANT things can really wreck havoc on our hairdo.
Then again, if you have a hairdo that is a bit BOUFFANT maybe a cap might help.
Share the word that makes you laugh the most
BLESSING # 10 – Hairspray
If you had to choose just one book what would it be?
Only read this book a few years ago but with a son from China it is a story that touched my heart.
Share your very best book
Blessing # 9 Books to share
Around our home we have lots of rabbits. I nearly took one out this evening on my way home.
They are fast when they want to be and this guy tonight dodged me at that last minute. Raised my heart rate to a real BOOM BOOM
They eat our garden plants with abandon just as Benjamin Bunny did in that famous tale of Beatrix Potter.
In spite of all their nonsense we still love them because they are cute critters.
Blessing # 8 All Creatures Great and Small
What storms we have had this past week. Our poor dog Dibley just hates them. He shakes like a leaf and there is nothing we can do to help him. Just cuddle and wait .
BLESSING #7 The sun always shines again
This morning at a meeting my friend Pastor Sharon Hausmann talked about the need to recognize and appreciate that each of us have different gifts.
Sharon mentioned a saying of Mother Teresa that I had never heard before. It was certainly a blessing to start the day.
The dear mother said that
“If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we BELONG to each other.”
Blessing # 6 Sharon and those like her who make us think
There is something so special about bubbles. They make bread rise they make sponge light they make mousse mousy.
We might whip them up in icecream, or magically make them through chemistry in cakes. We might even call in a friendly little bug or two to toot them out for our delight through fermentation.
Our favorite drinks are full of bubbles in various shapes and size from the powerful pettiante Perrier to the smoothest glass of Guinness.
But there is nothing quite as wonderful as a tall slim glass filled full of bubbly itself on a Friday night.
Can you imagine just how flat our world would be without them?
Any British BOOMER will for sure remember Basil Brush. He is looking as young and fresh as ever.
Naughty little fox he knows all the tricks. Food and fun really are the best way to keep young and beautiful
