Grace in Small Things #18

1. The SUN has been SHINING all day!!!

2. Blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries with a sprinkling of sugar.

3. An unscheduled weekend ahead. Could be the last one for a while (foreshadowing of #5).

4. A final, necessary conversation with The Tall One that went exactly as I hoped it would. He had been texting or calling me about once a month since our last interaction last fall. Normally he just texted something like "I wish we could talk" or didn't leave a message if he called and I ignored all of his attempts at contact, hoping he would eventually give up. Last month, he left a voicemail saying he wanted to make amends. So I decided to call him last week. I am glad to report that he has been clean for six months. He was hopeful that my call meant I wanted to be friends again. I made it clear that I was only calling to give him the opportunity to say what he wanted to say. He was very disappointed but he apologized for his behavior, I accepted his apology, and we said goodbye. Himself isn't so sure that I have heard the last of The Tall One but I think I have.

5. A part-time second job! I just got the call that I'm hired as a cashier at a local grocery store! Step one of the Change My Life plan is underway!


  1. Wow! Such exciting times for you!

    Congrats on the part-time second job. :)

  2. The sun was out here today too - such a mood lifter!

  3. We had sun too. And I even had a window open!!

    Congrats on the second job!

  4. Huzzah on all your good news! Yay for the new job! And SUNSHINE! Berries! Spring is on the way!

  5. Congrats on the successful beginning of The Plan!

  6. I was going to ask where've you been... but after reading your list, I'm pretty sure I have an idea.

    Congrats on the new job! (Sorry I'm so late.)

    And, um... sorry about the new name. ;)
