The Gentle Sounds of Falling Rain...

It's raining cats and dogs today.  I am lucky enough to be home and can enjoy it's peaceful rhythm.  I've got both girls home off and on on their spring break.  #1 daughter is babysitting for a friend with 6 children while they're celebrating their 25th anniversary in Hawaii.  #2 is driving back and forth while working at a restaurant.  #1 is laying beside me taking a nap with 2 snoring dogs.  These sounds relax me and help me to appreciate what I have.

My son asked me recently what I called him on this blog.  I told him that I just referred to him as my son.  He asked, "are you sure you don't call me dipshit or maybe dumbass?"  He has a great sense of humor.  Recently, he's been telling me how happy he is living here.  He hugs me before work and tells me he loves me.  He calls and checks on me.

Things aren't perfect and financially things are quite strained.  It really wears on me.  But, it's a lot better than where we were.  It's still one day at a time.  But, today is a good day.

Today I say a prayer of thanksgiving for these changes and the wealth of family.  I pray for continued growth and I say a  prayer for Henry.

Does anyone know the origin (original)  of the phrase "meet them where their at"

There's a book by Richard Passmore by that title?

Have a good day. =)

Don't know, but my favorite recovery phrase (from a local rehab) is "meet people where they are at, but don't leave them there".

Your life is blessed, with a few glitches...;)
