Gratitude Pies

While I was in the Great State of Texas last week, my sponsee with the home improvement skills put a new kitchen floor in my house. She also decided that a water hookup to my refrigerator would be appropriate since it has an ice maker. (It is busy making ice cubes as we speak.) The floor is so beautiful - it was so nice to come home to a home improvement. Since she loves my home-baked pies, I decided to bake her one this morning - and one for her helper, and one for me too. We had lunch today. She is such a blessing in my life - and not just for the stuff she does in my house.

Tomorrow I am running 12 miles. I am a bit nervous about this. I managed the ten miles OK on Weds... and Saturday is probably too soon to hit the long run, but I am behind, so I am going to do it anyway.

I am still exhausted from the trip. I will be going to bed in a minute. I will be up at 4 for my run. These Saturdays are early and long.

I am full of the knowledge of God's presence in my life right now. It is a quiet peaceful fullness. I am grateful for this. It is not always like this. I always know he is with me, but sometimes I really, really FEEL it - and this is one of those times.

God bless you all...
xoxo

God bless you, too... and aren't we, though? Just trying to maintain this newfound *heightened* sense of connectedness to HP and my desire to live the 11th Step prayer for as long as I can.
