Into the Summer Wishes box, amid wishes like “ride bamboo shoots at Storyland,” “play family Monopoly,” and “go to Water Wizz,” Whit put a small piece of paper that read, “Grace is able to go on all the rides at Legoland, because she is healed.” I wept.
It was Matt’s birthday.

My favorite blog post: Bones.
We spent Memorial Day in New Hampshire with our two dearest family friends.
I read The Starboard Sea by Amber Dermont, The Red Book by Deborah Copagen Kogan, Wife 22 by Melanie Gideon, and went on a thorough re-reading of Wendell Berry’s work spree.
“Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement…get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.” – Abraham Joshua Heschel

It being just the day before Christmas, I’m still working on our season’s greetings mailer. I think I just figured out how to end it–with Joshua Herschel’s quote. Radical Amazement is definitely the way to go. Thank you for this!
Happy Holidays and All the best wishes for your family,
I love these days of the year! :X so amazed 🙂
