I spent the day with my lovely uncle and aunt from Iowa. We had chocolate something or other about six times, which is just to say that we indulged in the opportunity to have joy and share the goodness of each other’s company.
It is almost ten PM and they’re still talking. Too cute. They’re like little college kids in a late night chum session. I’ve never heard so many analogies to different foods. Turnips, tomatoes, corn, heifers, steers, cows, bulls – I did not know that there were this many types of cows…. We’ve talked of many tear-jerking stories and things that don’t die when we do.
Today in clinic, my kids stayed home from school to spend the day with them and fitted puzzles, read stories, petted dogs ‘n such. I felt rich. This kind of wealth of heart around can’t be banked other than that of self-care.
Goodnight friends. My uncle’s still talking ‘n I have to catch this story about my dad when he was milking cows and playing pranks. Thanks for sharing this with me tonight. Keep on!
