Sunday Morning

It is a beautiful peaceful Sunday morning.  I went to church this morning and came home and made breakfast for my daughter.  She is going to a noon meeting today with a man from my home group she met last night at night watch.  

My head is still swimming with thoughts of my newly found 42 year old daughter in Chicago.  I hope to be planning a quick trip to Chicago in the next couple of months to see her again.  I am so thrilled and overwhelmed by this appearance of her and the idea of her three children.

Banana Girl left a comment this morning thanking me for "putting this out on the porch of the web for the rest of us to see and learn from."  I love the idea of the web, specifically a blog, being a front porch - it's just out there, and it is scary to put our most sacred stuff out there.  I know this has been talked to death by me and by others, but it really is the most amazing thing.  I am grateful today for my blog.  I am grateful also for the struggles it has caused.  And the questions it has raised.  

I am so so so so so grateful for the friends I have made here.  

Yesterday I made a blueberry custard pie,  Bill, from Life on Planet Bill, wrote about this pie and I asked for the recipe.  He sent it to me.  Yesterday when I got around to making it for night watch, I really pondered the ingredients.  Buttermilk in a custard?  I never heard of such a thing.  I called Scott and asked him about it and he told me to "trust the recipe."  That southern pies frequently have buttermilk in them.  So I made the pie and people loved it.  

I'm loving everyone today.
