Despite the shafts of yellow sun that dance on the window panes,
the singing river water that sparkles in front of my porch,
the savory kettle of wild leek & potato soup that flavors the kitchen air,
the tired smile of my hard-working husband,
and lunch with the whole fam at the zappy blue table,

despite all that,

Tuesday was a very sorrow-filled day.

A lovely lady -a friend, a sister in Christ, and a member of my church- lost her teenage son in a tragic fire.

My blog tends to be a therapeutic corner of gentle thoughts, memories, recipes, & family happenings, but today I write of deep sadness. Words fail me, actually.

Please remember Kathy and her family on your prayers. Thanks.
