Daily 5 - Day 344

Today's Daily 5:
  1. kit kat bar
  2. walking in the cemetery this afternoon.  (I paid a visit to a local Victorian cemetery that I love to walk in... it's a place I go when my heart is really aching, and I need time to walk and think and listen and pray.  I needed that today.)
  3. pausing to notice flowers, and smile at them, try to let their beauty penetrate
  4. taking photos as I walked... epitaphs that struck me, and flowers...
  5. the brief moments when my racing thoughts settled, and there was quiet peace and I could breathe again
  6. this beautiful post that Renee wrote, that my heart simply said, "yes" to, because I know that place she describes, in my own way, right now.
  7. watching a British comedy/drama television series on DVD with mom and dad and laughing.  British humor really is to my taste.
  8. recognizing in a fresh way a gift of grace offered to me in the midst of a challenging conversation last night
  9. tears that finally flowed, no longer able to be contained
  10. a quiet place to rest tonight at mom and dad's

thanks lady... email to come... it's been a pretty brutal day(s), and I'm just not even sure how to put words to what's going on at the moment... so I'll take those prayers.
