Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. I bought a flat of strawberries on Sunday and got them all cut up and dealt with, which is a task, much like writing book reviews, that I prefer completed rather than in progress.

2. I was really impressed with how effortlessly fast this young woman was in the pool … until I realized she was twins.

3. A friend texted this week to say that she’d been diagnosed with breast cancer, but didn’t have anything other than an initial diagnosis. She followed up after her visit with the surgeon to say that it was early-stage cancer and that some more tests would be necessary before a final course of action could be determined, but that overall the news was very optimistic. As she is not the only friend I’ve had with breast cancer, I’m so grateful that we live in a time when treatments are so successful.

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

I am sorry to hear that your friend has breast cancer. If it’s someone I know, please send her my best well wishes. If not, please still send her some extra well wishes.

Our Misty kitty LOVES bubbles.

She will sit by her water dish and beg for them, especially if she sees one of us get the Brita out of the fridge. A quick pour of more water splashes up some bubbles, which she rushes up to inspect. If they stick around a moment, she’ll reach in a paw and try to catch them.

Once they are all gone, she will look up and beg for more. She can do this forever. She loves bubbles that much.
