Post #64 Sunday, April 18th, 2021
Hello! Happy Sunday! Today, for once, it’s not about food. This strawberry came to me via my friend Ophelia. She often sends me encouragement and blessings, which I appreciate. Today’s, I thought, was especially timely. It’s easy to consider this reminder when life is going great and we are enjoying it without any nudging. But, perhaps our true measure comes when we can find pleasure in ANY day…even a crummy one.
This morning, though I woke up stiff and only slightly marked by my recent fall, I was a little annoyed that I had to start another day of exercise and paying attention to my injuries. I want to be over this, already!! Then I read my text from Ophelia and started thinking about going to my sister-in-law Franny’s for dinner tonight. We will be seeing her whole family, including Luca, who has already had his first birthday! Covid has been keeping us all apart for so many months! But with everyone vaccinated, we are sharing a meal. Hooray! Guaranteed moments of pleasure coming right up!
So, I loved the quote Ophelia sent. It is perfect for every day. There always IS some good thing to savor every day, especially if we look for it! Ciao for now! Patty ✌️?????
