|planted by seed, cared for, and harvested by|
For this Friday Five, what makes you smile? Remembering that Meister Eckhart said that if you pray "thank you" that that is enough of a prayer, share with us five things, memories, or activities that bring you smiles and gratitude.Here is my reaction one sense at a time ~
smell ~ a freshly harvested pepper. My students have mocked my glee, but what do they know.
taste ~ lavender brownies, ahh now that is something I have taught my students
sound ~ Keith Jarrett emerged from an illness that stopped him from playing piano with possibly my favorite jazz CD.
touch ~ pulling my grandmother made quilt over Mosaic Woman and myself on a cold winter evening.
sight ~ a friend's face...
“When you remember me, it means you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are. It means that you can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand between us. It means that if we meet again, you will know me. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart.”
― Frederick Buechner
