Franklin at my feet, cats finished their playtime fight ( Lizzie left, Henry fell asleep), the top of the poplar trees in the park swaying and the leaves of the fruit trees providing gentle sounds and breeze, the tomato plants looking taller overnight, first cup of coffee finished, paper perused,Paul relaxed and chatting across from me. Soon the walk, the garden, the grocery list, the print outs for open house, the emails returned......
"For the beauty of the earth,
for the glory of the skies,
for the love which from our birth
over and around us lies;
Lord of all, to thee we raise
this our hymn of grateful praise."
Soon the walk, the garden, the grocery list, the print outs for open house, the emails returned......but not yet. First I savor.
