GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
My Grami used to eat her dessert first sometimes, with full malice and forethought and zero apologies -- especially as she got older.
Yep, she would have a huge honking piece of apple pie with vanilla ice cream on top right before supper.
"To make sure I have room," she would laugh.
How I miss her; she was so sweet and kind and gentle and adorable. I bet she stood five feet tall and weighed 100 pounds soaking wet her whole life. #missyougram
Sometimes we all need a reminder that life is fragile. It's uncertain. It is temporary. I'm not trying to be maudlin or scary, mind you; just keeping it real.
Life is short, yo.
That's why we need to argue less and smile more ---oh, and hug. Mad, ridiculous amounts of hugging should be happening as a rule for all humans.
Like, every day. All the time. Almost as if it's going out of style, capisce?
So, try to let go of the icky and hold onto the good. And maybe, just every once in a while in honor of my dear sweet Grami, Monica Scott, have your pie as the first course of dinner, okay?

Rev 2:10c R. Alleluia, alleluia. Remain faithful until death, And I will give you the crown of life. Gospel Lk 21:5-11 While some people were speaking about how the temple was adorned with costly stones and votive offerings, Jesus said, "All that you see here– the days will come when there will not be left a stone upon another stone that will not be thrown down." Then they asked him, "Teacher, when will this happen? And what sign will there be when all these things are about to happen?" He answered, "See that you not be deceived, for many will come in my name, saying, 'I am he,' and 'The time has come.' Do not follow them! When you hear of wars and insurrections, do not be terrified; for such things must happen first, but it will not immediately be the end." Then he said to them, "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be powerful earthquakes, famines, and plagues from place to place; and awesome sights and mighty signs will come from the sky."
