Thank you NieNie

I sit with computer in hand, with no thoughts.  I have spent the day fighting laziness.  My usual hustle to complete my To-Do List never kicked in.  A day a lethargic work. . .waiting to end.   The numbness of shiftless neglect.  Choosing the mind numbing tasks required in my job--the ones I usually save for after hours when I am by the t.v.  Grey numbness.  Cold in-spite of the beautiful sunshine out side. A never ending numbness

Until I read this:

I have so much I can do to bless my family.  I have never sat in the Burn Unit and hope to be able to wash the dishes again. . . or button my child's shirt.  I have so much to do.  Now, an overwhelming sense of desire to bless my family with my efforts this weekend.  The kitchen, the house, a trip up the mountain. . . and six new trees to plant.  Ready. Set. Go!


  1. I loved this! And I hope some of those trees are fruit trees!

  2. They are ALL fruit trees. Three citrus to round out our citrus orchard--a tangelo, lemon, and lime (I still need to buy a blood orange tree. And then Asian Pear, plum, and peach!!!!!! I am pretty excited!
