Sunday morning and the light and coolness have me with the sliding doors open and watching the light play on the waters of the pool, the little 4 leggeds just filled with energy of the fall weather here! I can’t decide if it is the change of light, the cool weather or the excitement of Dot/Cob/Mom’s arrival this afternoon that has all of us feeling frisky here today as we look at the change of all around us, wondering if she will hit that cold water in the pool while here on her visit! Ah, yes it looks tempting yet the coolness has taken the chill in the pool and only those from up North now will be able to take it and truly enjoy it for any length of time before seeking refuge in the hot tub that gurgles and now has its own ailment of throwing bubbles and then without warning decides not to! Try as I might I just cannot figure this new problem out, yet cannot articulate it well enough to sound intelligent to Joseph or Stuart next door to even ask for help on it! haha
Ah the joys of home fix it problems and things that gurgle and provide such comfort as they work or do not!
It’s Sunday and as Dot/Mom/Cob prepares to board Allegient Air to fly here this afternoon we are excited to have her here, yet there is a little guy in VA, *(Kamryn)* who does not share in our joys… as he is to be without his Dot for a bit! Thinking he is not liking that a bit, as he loves having her nearby just in case he should want to spend the night, or want her to be close should he need her in his ever-changing world! Life is like that for an 11 year old if we all look back and try to remember. Kamryn made the honor roll and he also received his prized Michael Jordan shoes that were won at Michael Jordan Flight School on the same day; talk about a good day; once again he was “living the dream” up there in Virginia! Now he prepares for his tryouts at the AAU NRV Elite Basketball this coming week and will be sporting his Breast Cancer Awareness BasketBall Socks that I gifted him for this month of awareness. Yes it is a busy time here in the fall of 2012, a month of wonderful things, people, times and life in all its glory.
The gathering season to be certain, now that people are going, doing, cleaning house to prepare for the soon to be holidays and a new time of being just amazed! Maybe like Kamryn was when he saw those “tight shoes”? Just imagine being so absolulely and utterly shocked at your day… Look out Florida here comes Mom/Dot/Cob… ohhh what fun we’ll have!
That is the Sunday I am wishing for you!
To be amazed with each step, each breath, memory and new possiblity… Inhale wonder, exhale pain and that which no longer serves you well.
Give great thanks to the CReator and to that fire that burns within each of you as you move into your day, evening and night… for each of you are precious, And So it IS!
“Humor is a spontaneous, wonderful bit of an outburst that just comes. It’s unbridled, its unplanned, it’s full of suprises.”
