The Mom might not have time to post sermon notes today, ’cause they’re going to
comfort celebrate with a friend about turning FIFTY! They even got him 50 gifts: 27 sticks of gum, 20 tea lights (to help with his burnout), plus three other little things (one big fun-bubbles, to make sure he takes time to play!) In fact, just in case he does come here to read from facebook (doubtful), we’d better not put on a title!
Oh, btw–The Mom isn’t quite THAT crazy: she did NOT wrap each stick of gum and each candle separately!
However, she was crazy enough to “spend” $6 for a boquet of 5 or 6 daffodils yesterday, plus $4 for a little daffodil lapel pin. She thought the flowers weren’t worth quite that much, but the pin is quite nice–BUT, it’s going to a good cause, after all (the Cancer Society). And this morning she DOES think it’s worth it: the flowers have opened up and give such a wonderful “air of Spring”, which is so lacking in this snow-covered world! Even though… isn’t April supposed to be Cancer month? Well, we’re almost there!
I take that back… she is THAT crazy–those 50 gifts are in a wedding gift bag, all pink and with sequins! Ah well, maybe it’ll give him a smile, anyway! (The note says “..didn’t want you to think we went to any trouble–just used what we had on hand…”)
Walk to Rivendell: It’s slower going, since we’re hiking where the grass is thick, and the ground uneven.
