A Friday List

1.  Oh, to be newlyweds. 
Tootling around in your spiffy new car, cooking dinner for each other, 
and facing the world with bright eyes and big dreams. I remember those days. 
Actually, I don't really remember it all that well. 
It's been.   So.   Long.
God bless newlyweds.

2.  I do remember this. Soccer Saturdays. 
Find the shoes. Find the socks. Find the shin guards. 
Don't kick your brother. Cut up oranges. Pack the cooler. Load the chairs.
I even remember keeping a chart for the practice schedule 
on the sun visor in the van so I could remember where I needed to be next.
It worked. Most of the time.
These two cuties are just starting their soccer careers.
God bless soccer moms.

3.  This little girl is all ready for football season. 
Can you say Go Boilers?! She can!
God bless football.

4.  There is nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby.
Thank you, God, for sleep.

5.  "Take my picture, Granny." 
Of course I will. Happy to. 
While you are still happy to let me. 
Some day she might not be so cooperative, but for now, she's got it down.
Thank you, God, for smiles.

6.  Grown up friends. Wedding days. Precious memories.
God bless friendship.

7.  A sweet evening boat ride with Gumbo.
Just chillin' on the back of the boat. Ahhhh...
God bless lake time.

8.  And then this happened.
Not something you see every day. 
Thankfully, no one was hurt.

"In times of trouble, may the Lord answer your cry.
    May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm."
Psalm 20:1
Thank you, God, for safety.
God is good, all the time.
