Weekend Reflection 10/12

Looking outside...it's fall. We're on our way to McCall and it's a gorgeous drive. 

Listening...to comfortable silence while The Doctor drives. 

Loving...that this is a getaway weekend and we are together. 

Thinking...it's been a difficult week. With ups and downs and some not-so-good news that made me cry and swear and threaten violence. But last night we had a powwow and have some answers and a tentative plan. We had pleasant dinner with extended family which was delicious and enjoyable. And sleep is healing, both physically and emotionally.


In my kitchen...I have no idea because I'm not home. Lunch will be a burger at My Father's Place. Dinner might be the same! 

Wearing...denim skirt, red sweater, black cardigan, Kennedy tartan scarf. It's Fall and I love it. 

Hoping... for some rest and relaxation and time with The Doctor. 

Reading... don't faint from shock, but I reviewed The German Midwife this week. Loved it. 5 stars. 

Today...is our 23rd wedding anniversary.

Quoting...


What would I do without your smart mouth
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
Got my head spinning, no kidding,
I can't pin you down
What's going on in that beautiful mind
I'm on your magical mystery ride

And I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright
My head's under water, but I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

'Cause all of me loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me, I'll give my all to you 
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you're crying, you're beautiful too
The world is beating you down,
I'm around through every mood
You're my downfall, you're my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can't stop singing, it's ringing, in my head for you

My head's under water, but I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

'Cause all of me loves all of you 
Love your curves and all your edges 
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me, I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all, all of you
Give me all of you

Cards on the table, we're both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it's hard

'Cause all of me loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me, I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you

John Legend, All of Me

Feeling...grateful for my husband. 23 years ago, we promised ourselves to each other. 23 years ago, I thought I knew how much I loved him. 23 years ago, I had no idea how much more I could love him today. He encourages me. He believes in me. He completes me.

We are each far from perfect, but we have learned so much about communication over the years. We've laughed and cried. We've had joys and challenges. But through it all, we've experienced it together. And there is no one else I'd rather live this life with than him. 

Planning...this to simply enjoy this time together. 

Gratitude...for a beautiful day that is brand new with no mistakes in it, yet.

From my world... 



What about you? What are you reflecting on this week? How has your week gone?
