Grace in Small Things 196:365

1. gut-check reminders of just how terrible it would be to lose someone you love. because sometimes we need to stop & realize just how much people mean to us & how precious the gift of their presence in our life is.

2. driving home along the edge of a storm. the way the defined edge of the black storm clouds butt against the blue sky. seeing the fuzzy smudge of rain falling less than a mile away, as a slight mist flecks the side of your car facing the storm. and being amazed at the way nature works.

3. beating the storm home in the nick of time.

4. being able to commiserate on the bloodbath that was the Sox-Yankees game. because if you have to endure it, at least you don't have to endure it alone.

5. grilled chese & tomato sandwiches.

Re: #1. How true. I lost one of my best friends last week. It was totally unexpected. We had been together the week before for a night out. Lots of laughs, as usual. The very next week - dead from a massive heart attack at the young age of 52. It's very hard to accept when she seemed in good health. So, yeah, appreciate the people you love.

Blood bath is right.

Good old fashioned pitchers duel tonight, though. Beckett was great; only problem is so was Burnett.

Pat: Very true. Can't ever tell our loved ones how we feel too much or too often.

Ted: I can't believe it's been a full cycle through the rotation since you left this comment. What a crazy ride it's been!
