it's Small Mercies miércoles! today I'm grateful for...

It's miércoles, and that means taking note of "Small Mercies" I'm thankful for this week.


I am grateful for a weekend spent with dear friends from Austin who were willing to drive for over six hours in the car with an 18 month old, each way -- just to spend time "being" with all of us (and meet Sofia, of course!).  To watch "children" I've known since birth, with their own children... priceless!

Faithful friends are a sturdy shelter;
whoever finds one finds a treasure.

Faithful friends are beyond price,

no amount can balance their worth.

Faithful friends are life-saving medicine;

those who fear God will find them.

Those who fear the Lord enjoy stable friendship,

for as they are, so will their neighbors be.
~Sirach 6: 14-17
