A day of raising my hands to God in bed asking him to provide for my son. Ask big and often.
A day of conversing with my husband all the way to his mother's farm, sharing our year's goals. I informed him of one or two of my goals for him.
A day of throwing a soft ball from grandparent to grandchild to mother to grandfather to father. In the living room, from the chairs. Giggles. Children once again.
A day of wantonly eating pie. Whipped cream on top. Flaunting in the face of tomorrow's annual sugar fast.
A day of letting my son drive halfway home on a fast road with a gravelly shoulder => my unrelenting tense shoulders.
A day of scouring sugar and gluten free recipes on the internet. Really?
A day of marinating a roast with garlic and accompanying herbal companions. Grateful.
A day of making two green smoothies -- throwing in some parsley, lettuce, banana, blueberries. The first, acceptable to the teenager; the second, not so much. Understandable.
A day of looking forward to health, happiness, family, and God in the new year. Let 2012 begin, amen.
