not just another day



Blow, blow thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude.
William Shakespeare



(259-272)

* the Boise family safely arrived home
* sitting close at church
* grilled cheese and ham to send them on their way
* "touched you last"
* children yelling farewells from disappearing car
* ability to take down last tree
* toasty bed
* Primary
* kitty purrs
* he waits in line early morning for the reservation
* grapefruit
* oatmeal
* fresh start
* she has the courage to apologize

Glad they made it safely home. It was so nice of Al to give us her time on Friday. She's such a good mamma. And it was fun to see Doug and your Lizzie. Lizzie is so darling. Tell her thank you for helping us with the boys - we kept tossing one her way when I needed free hands. Love you Cristie!
