I am thankful for collegiality. People at work are speaking with openness, hoping for unity, praying for protection against great financial difficulty. I am taken by the thoughtfulness that my peers are putting into our current state of budget difficulties.
So, again, I find myself thankful for the gift of faith and trust in the living God. The next few months and years won't be easy in some ways but He is here with me and beside me.
It's been a no photo day, very blustery. The leaves of the purple leaf are coming in. They're not quite overwhelming the blossoms but close. The allergy trees in the back yards of the neighborhood have begun to bloom. Pleh. I have my air purifier running on high.
