today was just today-
a busy happy funny laughing crazy good-news day.
trekking to the ikea store where meatballs and sofas sit just aisles from each other.
daddy’s last text to say he loves us all with the giddiness to get to haiti evident just in the way he typed.
mom hanging up her dragonfly hooks, bird feeder, and the praising joy of this new home in her eyes.
and her patience amidst temper tantrums. she amazes me.
building bookshelves with L and decorating new desks with M, a new dresser and a giggly boy with a belly laugh that will make you smile-guaranteed.
Papa all clear of cancer and headed home tomorrow to a happy Mamo and two red-golden dogs.
“This is the day the Lord has made!”
The Lord made this day to be just what it was-
he made it- designed it- walked us through it-
this happy busy laughing going-places good-news day.
So I “rejoice and be glad in it…”
because all days that the Lord has made
are good days.
