too many to number




I have always thought it would be a blessing if each person could be blind and deaf for a few days during his early adult life. Darkness would make him appreciate sight; silence would teach him the joys of sound.
Helen Keller


1-10

*brown eyes that really see
*ears to hear these birds and soft breaths of dear heart
*the youngest filled with eager school news
*burning desire
*feelings of gratitude and wonder at a Temple dedication
*juicy fresh fruit swirling around in my blender



*a new dishwasher that makes glasses sparkle as if they were washed by hand
*caring friends (they ask like they really want to know)
*crickets that remind me of summer's last gasp
*a ride on the little blue scooter...it always makes me smile
