Enjoying the Journey

Sunday is the day I share a little of my soul. Enjoy.

Do you ever have a morning that you wake up and just thank the Lord that you got another day? I have to say that today was one of those mornings when everything was just boldly clear how precious life is and how wonderful it is to be in a world with those I love surrounding me.  

In a few weeks I'll be in Utah with my family and friends there. We'll probably do a lot of this...

But that seems far away after this week of pneumonia, my son getting his first broken arm, and some long, quiet days of just sitting in bed and being very still. 
It was a good reminder week that though there will be precious, epic, breath-taking moments of this...

Hopefully many of these...

There will probably be more of this.
I'm reminded of this quote:

"[The fact is] most putts don’t drop. Most beef is tough.
Most children grow up to be just people. 

Most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration.

 Most jobs are more often dull than otherwise.

 …Life is like an old-time rail journey—delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. 

The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride” - Jenkins Lloyd Jones 

There it is. Happy Sunday. Thankful for the blessings every single day. 

Oh...and thankful for the people who make the journey worth taking. Thank you for being on this crazy, beautiful, sometimes lame (but mostly amazing) ride. 

Always My Very Best,

Your Friend Chef Tess
