Thank you for learning with me!
Thank you for spending time with me today!
would rather….. ….instead of
drink an Arnold Palmer any kind of soda
get up early stay up late
put everything away have things lay about
play or watch a sport go to a party
read a book watch a movie
eat out bake anything
be by the ocean camp outside
play with kids be at the adult’s table
visit relatives be dressed up (with stocking)
Thanks for the inspiration for this post from our March SOL.
It was great learning with you today!
My childhood tasted like…
still steaming New York City style bagels: pumpernickel, rye, and everything,
Charlie’s chips and pretzels from a tin,
homemade Jewish Apple Cake,
fried spam or pork roll sandwiches with yellow mustard,
wonton soup and egg rolls,
Philadephia soft pretzels, either just baked or cold from being sold on Bustleton Avenue,
cherry cheesecake and french fries for lunch,
and my grandmother’s wide noodle homemade chicken soup.
My childhood sounded like…
children playing in the pool,
air raid sirens every weekday at noon,
the theme song of Little House on the Prarie,
my dad’s laugh.
My childhood smelled like…
sweaty bodies of kids playing.
(Thank you to Stopping by an English Class on a Random Day for the idea for this post).
Grateful for spring break to keep sick kids at home.
Grateful for the suggestion of a different thought to get the right help for our daughter.
Grateful for blessed friends who will spend time with the boys while we are with our girl.
Grateful for generous friends who will provide a meal when the week hits again.
Grateful for the outpouring of prayers and well wishes, as well as her friends who are sending sweet thoughts of healing and missing.
Grateful for the kindness of the #TWT community to read my short posts this weekend and kindly respond.
Grateful that I have a quiet morning and one more day to get ready for the work week.
Long week of
not knowing why.
At least we have answers,
but looking at a
road of recovery ahead.
youth, and the Disney Channel
to get us through.
