My first thought was to send a note to my sisters and a couple of friends….but then i felt it blog-worthy!
When Jesus told his little parable, his focus was on the JOY of Finding something Lost. He spoke of a woman who’d lost a dime (or something equivalent), and when she found it, she invited all of her friends over to have a big party to celebrate. Who knows what she spent on the party? and who cares!? What mattered was only that SHE FOUND IT!!!!
i find myself at this moment just having to tell the world (and this blog has reached every continent except the penguins down below): REJOICE WITH ME, as i have found something worth a million dimes! i wish you could ALL come over, including a Waddle of Penguins!
For almost two months i lost my senses of smell and taste. Just now i got my first good whiff since Christmas Day of these EXTRAORDNARY ordinary spices of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. For days i was beginning to lose hope that from that first sip of coffee as the sun comes up to that last sliver of pizza crust, from one tiny Goober to a steep pile of pancakes, i would never know the glory again.
How WONDERFUL to lose anything – but especially something so precious as one’s senses, as long as we find it again. Then we REMEMBER….and we SAVOR how incredibly BLESSED we are!!!!!!!
Come on, Waddlers. Let’s dance, cuz i’m in Heaven! “Oh, i love to climb a mountain and to reach the highest peak, but it doesn’t thrill me half as much as” SIPPIN ON SOME TEA!
And i pray, God, never let me take one sniff, one taste for granted.
