Today is April 22, 2012. It is 8:20 a.m.
The vinca in our front yard is a riot of purple. The daffodils are past, but the azaleas are hitting their peak, and I see the first buds on our dogwoods. The cardinal family has returned to our back yard, and I’ve heard that bunnies have been spotted in the neighborhood.
At this moment, those dearest to us are fine. Peter had a great week being the center of attention for a video to be aired in the not-too-distant future. Seth was great as he parachuted in for a short visit between his travels. Jeremy’s new job is challenging and wonderful, and we’re planning a week with his family sometime this summer.
My job had some challenges this week, but that’s why I love it. In addition, the possibility of my being part of a TV docu-series on family secrets seems to be turning into a reality. And any week without a night of insomnia is worth celebrating. The world could be better, but it also could be worse.
If life were a DVD player, I’d hit “pause.”
