Time zipped by since my last posting. End of March, how did that happen? I’ve been so busy playing in the writing sandbox, s-e-r-i-o-u-s-l-y writing, not blogging but that’s another post.
My beautiful “not-of-my-body” spiritual daughter started a new blog, UNDER THE TEA COZY. A delightful young woman, wife, mother of three, talented musician and she cooks! Friday night, was one of our double date nights in White Rock at a new restaurant. Well, new to us; Five Doors Down on the boardwalk. Jamie, Sean and the kiddies are our “of the heart” family. The family who came into our lives and made a difference. Jamie has written the back story of our relationship on her blog and how we met and what she wore on her head. I thought she just wore a funky hat and a quirky wardrobe. Go have a peek.
Jamie is a treasure. I’ve watched her become a confident woman, passionate about life and God. She can preach up a storm, she’s vulnerable and strong and touches your heart with laughter. We spent many Sunday mornings together before Connect Church moved to Abbotsford. It’s a long drive to the valley and I sensed is was time for me to stay on this side of the tunnel or river. I miss Jamie and Sean. I miss watching them mature with wisdom and grace. I miss watching their little ones grow up. Our date nights give us a chance to re-connect and laugh for a few hours. So much fun.
Jamie’s posts are full of recipes. She is inspired by “Oh She Glows” another site with healthy food ideas. Since I have been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, basically meaning; “Yeah you have it and do something about it with diet” I’ve been searching for good recipes, healthy eating and exercise. Jamie posts a recipe, how to play and photos along the way. My mother would be happy. I’m finally letting the cooking gene rise to the top. I have to. I want to live. We want to have many more date nights with Jamie and Sean. Next time, my other “not of my body” spiritual daughter; Lizzie and Dan should come too. Or…we can have a big dinner at our house, I could cook. Maybe.
Here is a morning sunrise for you. My California high Sierras friend Pam took this early in January.
Stay safe, stay warm and very much-loved.
Next post….it’s all about writing.
