Good Morning!!

The sun is shining.  It has been awhile, but it has appeared.   The trees look rather surprised in the morning light, dazed.   We have been in mist.

Today is a Zach day, so I am soon away, and then, I am going over to the East Bay to meet with Jane tonight.   I probably won't have time to check in.  I understand that Zach and his family are having a tough time, so prayerful thoughts sent their way would be lovely.  It is not easy to have a bone marrow transplant.  It is even more difficult when you have a two and half year old to reassure.    Zach and I will return to the Discovery Museum today if that is what he wants to do.  I want to play with the trains.  :)

I'm sure he does too.  When we left the museum last week, he was singing in the car, "I am happy."   He is a sweetheart and this is a tough time for him and his family.  Zach prayers!   They can be small ones as he is small, though huge in two year old stature and strength.

This is what I carry with me today.

    It is not happiness that makes gratefulness,
    but gratefulness that makes happiness.
