MJ tells me that Bart Robertson was the inspiration for the breakfast nook.  It has become our favorite place for meals.  I look out on the land, and MJ looks at Saint Francis.  She thinks that the rockrose growing around and above Saint Francis discourages birds from settling on his head.  I haven’t scrubbed him down in months.

Instead of saying grace, we have the habit of a pause before eating to hold dear ones in our hearts and to remember our blessings.  I was thankful this morning for a spirit of gratitude, and for the small things that gladden my heart and lift my soul.  Mike Jones was undoubtedly the inspiration for this prayer.

Small things like a glorious sunrise about 7.00 this morning. I tried for a picture but the light was backwards.  I will hold it in my memory.
