Some mornings when you wake up you have no idea where the day will be going.  This morning when I stumbled out of bed, Terry was already up.  He came back into the bedroom and announced we had to clean out the entire china cabinet and move it. 

I admit I looked at him and wondered if I was dreaming, but I ask why and was told Paddy had decided it looked like a tree in the middle of the night. We have wood floors and we knew the liquid would be under as well as against the cabinet.  After I showered we got busy... or I should say he did. Bless him as he removed EVERYTHING; His Grandmother's China, all of our crystal, our Christmas Crystal and serving dishes, our special collectible from the last two centuries.  He was even going to wash it all before he put it back in. I convinced him that was not necessary. We would wash what we used before we used it.

In the midst of this he found a letter his Dad wrote him on his fiftieth birthday, ten years ago. He and his dad were very close.  Inside the letter was a picture of his dad in Korea. Terry was only a year old then... and his Dad was reflecting back to that first year of life and how dear his first born son was to him.

We are nearing Sept and the first anniversary date of Ben's Continuation Day. His laughter is missed. His stories are missed. His smile is missed. It is up to us in our path today to take those memories and share the practices with others. We are heading into town for groceries and I love smiling and saying good morning and thinking of Ben. He would be stopping to visit with every one along the way.

What will you discover on your path today?


"This is the day that the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
