The Most Important Thing I Learned While in Florida,

is that I can't ever live in Florida. After being in the state just three days, my joints were swollen, I had black circles under my eyes, my face was red and puffy and I felt like I was getting the flu, which is how I felt all the time when I lived there. It was so good to see my friends and family, I miss them so much, but bing healthy is priority. Megan Oliver and I were also very hot in FL; The cooler temps here are really more to our liking.

After five consecutive days of rain, the sun came out amid the dark clouds. I wish my camera could capture how magical it looked.


We keep the UPS guy pretty busy. Today he dilivered nine packages, some are prints and t-shirts for Megans business, but others are Christmas gifts. We do most of our shopping online.


Our nine and a half foot tree. Every time Oliver sees it he tells me, "It's so pretty."


Yesterday while Oliver was eating breakfast at the kitchen table, he looked around and said, "I like the white house, it's so pretty." I think he realizes we are going to be moving soon.

But with you and Megan and your flair for decorating - wherever you live will be beautiful and Oliver will like it. Your tree is beautiful and so glad you are back where physical health is improved. I see the familiar Amazon box - I've been fighting with them recently and yet - they are still the easiest way for me to access reading material and order things not found in Springtown or Weatherford (which is a dadgum large category now I think of it!)
Enjoy the now - I have had a rather unexpected life - and realize how many God moments have been given me - Max Lucado wrote a lovely description
"An eternal instant. An instant in time that had no time. A picture froze in mid-frame, demanding to be savored! A moment that reminds you of the treasures surrounding you. Your home. Your peace of mind. Your health. A moment that tenderly rebukes you for spending so much time on temporal preoccupations. A moment that can bring a mist to the manliest of eyes and perspective to the darkest life."
