Three things I'm thankful for:

1. I think I'm either allergic to this new-to-me water-proof mascara or I'm in the early stages of a cold. Either way, it was a blessing to have the house to myself today as I came home from work and fell asleep til 8 pm. Then I watched another version (far suckier version) of Jane Eyre (SERIOUSLY. What did she fall in love with? What parts of his character were heart-warming? 'splain to me THAT.) and now I'm going to go back to bed. So maybe it's the start of a cold. But my eyes are scratchy. Is that normal?

2. I'm thankful for my mom. She picked up 2800 labels and envelopes today. She will spend the next week sticking one to the other. Anyone want to help me fold and stuff 2800 newsletters NEXT week? At my house? It'll be a party. Complete with party stuff... like... newsletters. Annnnnnd envelopes. And tea n cookies. And conversation. And possibly laughter. If we feel like it.

3. Other things I'm thankful for: October in BC. Freedom. Hope. Opportunities. Bubble baths. Down comforters. Beds with 7 pillows. New friends. Old pajamas. Soft socks. Happy dreams. Healthy sons. Encouraging sermons. Divine peace.

Shalom, friends.
