Day after the Christmas feast – Boxing Day the Canadians call it – a mixed day of blessings and goodness if you try to find it. Have a look, it’s not too hard.
It was a morning read, new old book, a gift from our daughter, a volume she bought at her school store.
It was pumping up tires on new bikes, all three kids riding up and down the street sidewalk. Joy and accomplishment were evident; building confidence for when the training wheels come off next year.
It was errands to drop off donations and fill the gas tank for a couple road trips this weekend.
It was putting the good dishes away until the next time. It was leftovers supper.
It was playing Fashion Press with our younger daughter; her explanations were deliberate and thorough.
It was a dozen or so sugar cookies for dessert.
It was a mix of lessons and blessings, not too hard to find; ya just have to look.
