We drove to Collins Orchards with my sister Rachel and Poppa to pick peaches and blackberries and to let Aaron get some work done yesterday morning.
I couldn't help but think about our colleagues in the Solomon islands and how much they would enjoy the juicy fruit we were picking.
Every little thing still seems like a celebration...spending time with extended family, enjoying a beautiful low-humidity day, marveling in the jewel tones of the fruit.
I hope I never get over the delight of little things.
Something else that gave me joy...cooking the blackberry cobbler in a pretty blue and white dish given to us as a wedding present.
I even got tickled watching my sister and my mom take synchronized bites of their cobbler. Just having both of my sisters and my mom and me all in the same room, oh, it's been a good day!
