Today, I give thanks...
for budding ideas that hold all the wonder and promise of unbounded imagination.
for true neighbors.
for a true home.
for open windows to welcome guests on a hot, Pacific breeze.
for blueberry bushes heavy with fruit on a cool, pale summer morning.
for my own Little Sal,
and an Assumption Day pie...
even though it could have used a bit more cornstarch.
for lessons learned
and for new beginnings.
for The Beginning...
...and The End that is still to come.
