2. Another Mary in my life shared her news that she is expecting another child. A gorgeous spring day, we stood on her front step and I hugged her, holding back tears of joy. She is young and beautiful and so happy. Her family is young and full of possibility, her husband is a gem. I'm so happy for them. Precious.
3. Letters. . . my nieces have taken up letter writing, which just pleases me to no end, and thrills the senior generation of my family. So precious to see their familiar script on an envelope in my mailbox. These are young women who are so busy with college and jobs and athletics. Families are treasures.
4. Paul's office. . . Dan and I were at his mom's this week. In his dad's office, Paul's presence was palpable, the room representing a life well-lived. Photos of his wife, children, grandchildren. Shelves filled with books on the subjects he loved. Plaques that honored achievements in his life. His familiar handwriting filled post-it notes and scraps of paper pinned to a bulletin board. Life is fleeting and oh, so precious.
What was precious in your week?
