Good News Friday

*A new dear friend stopped by. I want to be more like her.

*Being able to call a friend I knew would understand.

*Help that didn’t cost me anything. Didn’t solve the problem but pointed me in the right direction.

*Knowing God gathers my tears.

*Encouragement from blogging friends, especially when they didn’t know I needed it. Thanks God for inspiring them.

*A leaky shower drain seems to be fixed with a bit of packing tape. Now to figure out the other leaks.

*The space blanket that covers my kitchen window in the the afternoons, dropping the temperature by four degrees. The gold side in adds a lovely hue.

*My tower fan that I bought for my dog years ago does a great job of cooling my toasty office.



*The chance to help a friend

*Praying for others

*Air conditioning

*Good movies: “Sense and Sensibility” “Race to Space” “The Dating Handbook”

*Watched the lunar eclipse, with the moon playing peek-a-boo through the mares’ tail clouds. Cool.

*A good difference in how I feel going through the day thinking, “God is protecting me.”

*Made healthy choices shopping

*People I enjoy seeing, every time, at the places I go.

*Making progress on rewrites

*I can’t explain the joy of opening the door for someone and someone opening the door for me, people just being polite and helpful to each other. Love it.

*Be careful what you pray for: I prayed for God to help make my house a home and safe; a plumber, reconstruction adjuster, and insurance adjuster are trying to help now. Thanks, God? Struggling to keep my sense of humor and not utterly failing.

*Good friends checking up on me.

*Quail outside my office window

*Precious moments of peace and calm, no matter how short

*Delicious lunch with dear friends at Raising Cane, laughter and encouragement

*A dear friend is teaching me to say “Thanks, God, for the challenge.” Not easy but good.

*God’s grace
