Lately there have been so many new things, great opportunities, delightful people, that I find myself looking forward to each day as much as I used to look forward to the sunrise. More farmers' markets are making room for us, and the people in the market communities are really wonderful -- the most caring, supportive friends I've ever known outside of church. A school has invited us to run a brownie fundraiser for them starting this month. Another PTO will sample our brownies at their meeting next week.
Brownies are everywhere, and sometimes it's a little overwhelming. It's tricky to set up for growth at the same pace that growth occurs. But what fun! A mental challenge, physical activity, social connections, financial support, and the ever-present opportunity to provide food for people who really need and appreciate it.
I don't need that chair and sunrise and quiet time anymore. My whole life feels like sunrise.
