pizza, real mail, and into the night

Before we head into this day of days, let’s look back on three beautiful things from my past week, particularly because I’m having a hard time picturing beautiful things in the days to come:

1. My parents gave us a gift card to our favorite D.C. pizza place, so for the first time in ages, we went out to eat just because.

2. A friend from my old job sends a gossipy card and printouts of her family. Her older son, whom I once babysat, is 30!

3. Karen and I spend hours on the phone, just like in the old days. It’s good to talk about everything and nothing.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world recently?

I thought one absolutely beautiful thing was the last episode from West Wing Week https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdSnHI-DDrE

It put a smile on my face and made my heart happy – what a wonder that we have had 8 years of this incredible intelligence, talent, and brilliance. I am deeply grateful.

I finished a pair of socks.
I’m reading a book that I am really enjoying.
We are going out to breakfast tomorrow, since there is a place around the corner I can easily get to on my crutches.

I’ll take whatever I can get, you know?
