Today is a beautiful day! The sun is shining without a cloud in the sky. It's warm, but the intense heat of summer seems to have broken and I'm looking forward to the fall. There is a freshly frosted homemade chocolate cake on the counter ready to celebrate Eric's return home tonight.
We went to mass this morning at Jonathan's school and I love starting the day by receiving the Eucharist. The recessional song was not one that I recognized, but it must be a favorite for the school. All the kids boisterously joined in the singing and there were hand motions to go with the song as well. After mass we waited on the sidewalk to say goodbye to Jonathan and we watched all the classes file by. A group of 6 or 8 second grade girls started singing the recessional song again with all their little hearts as they passed . They skipped and sang all the way back to the school. It was so precious and charming! I was so glad that their teacher did not scold and shush them back into neat, quiet, straight lines.
Yes, today is a beautiful day. And, I'm going to make a point to slow down and enjoy every second of it!
