“I’m so glad my window looks east into the sunrising . . . It’s so splendid to see the morning coming up over those long hills and glowing through those sharp fir tops. It’s new every morning, and I feel as if I washed my very soul in that bath of earliest sunshine.”

~ L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables


Sitting quietly waiting for the dawn to arrive pondering the simple blessings of this past week with my granddaughter. Soon, she’ll tiptoe into my bedroom, climb into bed beside me, and another day will begin. Today is our last full day together before she goes home. We’ll attend church and see where the rest of the day takes us. We’ve had such fun and done so much this week yet it seems there are still many little things we’ve not gotten to yet. Maybe later today . . . maybe next time. At some point we’ll make a quick run to Costco to pick up the photos we’ve taken over the past week. She’ll take them home with her.

Oh! I hear footsteps! More later . . .

Today’s featured blog:

(Don’t forget every comment on the blog in August enters your name into the drawing for either a copy of the beautiful Bella Grace magazine or my book Two Hearts: An Adoptee’s Journey Through Grief to Gratitude.)


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
    1. Thank you, Linda Ann! And thank you for stopping by today. I’m heading over to check out your blog.

  1. I’ve never had a grandson crawl into bed with me, but I’ve had plenty of snuggles on the couch. Nothing is better!
