National Day of Encouragement

It's the National Day of Encouragement, today. I've found out from (in)courage. It's a site I like to drop by and share my experiences of the day. They gave away a pack cards of encouragement for free, so we could share encouragement, too.

I've sent one of my cards to a friend that is always there for me and has helped me along in my journey. It seems like now that my kids are bigger and on there own more, her's are taking more time and attention. It's good to send a little encouragement as her life is picking up speed and things are less 'normal' than they use to be.

Showers...

This August has not been the normal sunny days we hope for in the NW. We've had lots of fog and grey rainy days. Great for the plants, sad for me. Today, though is a sunny clear day.

Tonight there's suppose to be a meteor shower. I have yet, to catch a real meteor shower, something seems to intervene and the opportunity is lost.



I'm hoping to make it past midnight to see them, it's often cloudy when they happen or I have to work early the next day and choose to sleep instead. So, maybe, tonight there will be clear skies and a Perseid showers, too!

Have you done anything this summer you haven't done before?

Take me out...

...to the ball game!

Tonight, was another unexpected event, tickets to see a Mariner Game at Safeco Field!


We won, which is nice, but really it's being with friends, laughing, singing the songs, clapping the rhythms and being submersed in the the moment. There's so much going on at the game, the wave, the hydro races, the cap game and then the real game as well. I'm able to stay connected to the moment and in the moment is where peace and serenity are found even with a stadium full of cheering people.
