So grateful.

I love Sunday mornings. It is a reflective time for me. A time when I review my week. It was a good week.

I have always been a believer of life after death but that was confirmed to me on Wednesday. (I wrote about that in my last blog). I have thought a lot about that day since then. I have always talked to my parents, grandma and Joe, but now, all of that is less abstract to me.

Last night our neighbors and friends gathered on our driveway. John projected a movie on the side of my neighbors house. I thought of the many years we had done that in the past. Making memories. Our neighborhood daughter, Kourtney, is leaving for college next Friday. Those eighteen years have flown by. The first time I met Kourtney she was just weeks old. That was when we were building our house. It has been a pleasure for me to have loved her with a front row seat for so many years.

We have all grown up and grown together during that time. We have had many celebrations. Many parties and laughs. We have known great joy and terrible sorrow. Through it all, we did it together.

Now, some of our family neighbors have moved off our little street. Not too far, but not out our window. That is okay. When you love people physical distance doesn’t mean much.

I love making memories with these people. This was my post last night on Facebook. “I sat tonight, in the dark, on my driveway. I was surrounded by some of my favorite people. As we watched a movie on the side of the house I thought about how lucky and blessed I am. I love that feeling. All is well.” It is so true. I don’t need a lot of friends. I saw a quote once that said, “Friends are like coins. I’d rather have four quarters than a hundred pennies.” That is so so very true. I love all of the quarters in my life.

Life is good!
