MY WEEKLY THANK YOU NOTE TO GOD. THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR MAKING THIS SPACE AVAILABLE.

This has been a terrible week.  Our family is experiencing a terrible problem which is shaking the foundation of love upon which our family is built.

I thought that we were closed to resolving this problem this week and was looking forward to celebrating an easing of the small earth quakes that keep shaking my family’s foundation.

I was sort of like the road runner jogging along, keeping my head turned behind me, putting distance between me and the threat when I went over a new cliff with arms and legs all akimbo.

It is grey and dreary here in New Jersey this morning and I prayed for a reason to smile.  And them out of the dreariness I thought of my beloved Grandfather and how much he looked like Jimmy Durante.  Then I stumbled upon this video of Jimmy Durante singing with Louis Armstrong.  Now this could not have been a more perfect balm for my soul.  Jimmy who always brings Grandpop back to life and Louis who is my all time favorite.  So, I hope this works because I hope to share my smile with you.

 

Wishing you many reasons to smile,

Bernadette
