A little about a lot

Tuesday, July 31, 2007


Today was going to be the day.

The day that I cut back on my caffeine intake.

But then I mentioned in the morning meeting that I had considered stabbing a source in the neck and I decided that today should definitely NOT be the day.

The end.

Dear Nanaw

Dear Nanaw,
I thought of you today because I had a cucumber sandwich for lunch. I went to Allie's, a little deli here, and ordered the "veggie crunch" sandwich. It had cream cheese, cucumbers and bean sprouts. It was soooo good, but not as good as the ones you make.

I was eating with a lady I met last week - her name is Pat as she's the pastor here at the United Methodist Church. I know you'd like it if I went to church there, but I probably won't. Hope that's OK. They have an evening service on Wednesdays that I think I'll go to, so that can be our compromise.

Pat is nice and I really enjoyed having lunch with her. I hope we can do it again sometime.

It wasn't just today that I thought about you. I think about you a lot.

I think about you when I look at my hands. They look like yours.

And every morning when I put your ring on, and every evening when I take it off, I think of you then, too.

The ring is fabulous, by the way. Everyone I meet asks me about it, and I get to talk about you, and tell them what a classy lady you are, and that you call this a "dinner" ring. I always add that I have no idea why you call it that. I'll have to ask you the next time we talk.

I also think about you when I wear your earrings. I have the red ones and some dangly coin ones that Par always recognizes, and some with turqoise in them.

I think about you when I'm with Seth, because I want him to meet you. He's special, and I hope you like him. I'm sure you do.

I think about you when I say the Lord's prayer, because I can hear your voice saying "And the power, And the glory ..." You emphasize the "and." That's how I say it now, too.

Sometimes I get sad when I think about you, but usually I'm smiling when you come to mind. It helps to have so many things that remind me of you, because I miss you a lot. I know you are doing great. I'm doing pretty good here, too. I can't wait to hear what you've been up to.

I love you,
