2012: March

We had a wonderful week visiting Grandma and Grandpa in Florida.

I read Faith by Jennifer Haigh, Double Time by Jane Roper, Bread of Angels by Stephanie Saldana, and I re-read several of Laurie Colwin’s books including Family Happiness and A Big Storm Knocked It Over.

My favorite blog post this month: Trust, faith, belief, and religion.

Grace performed in the third grade skits.

We saw a cardinal in our backyard for the first time.

When I was younger, I missed so much, failing to be fully present, only recognizing the quality of particular moments and gifts after the fact. Perhaps that’s the one thing that being “grown up” is: to realize in the present the magnitude or grace of what we’re being offered. – Mark Doty, “Heaven’s Coast”
