after i dropped graham at preschool this morning i stopped at target for a couple items. jeremy needed shave gel - gillette fusion hydra gel ultra sensitive, to be exact. all other shaving creams/gels are dead to him. the boys needed glue. we have taped together far too many craft projects because our glue sticks ran out weeks ago. and taped-together crafts just don't look as cute as glued-together crafts. so those were the only two items i needed but you know i walked out of the store with 13 extra somehow-they-just-hopped-into-the-cart items.
oh how i love you, target.
on a completely different subject, i read something last night just before falling asleep. it's a keeper, this quote...
"...the best, sanest people on the planet know: that life is long, that people both change and remain the same, that every last one of us will need to f**k up and be forgiven, that we're all just walking and walking and walking and trying to find our way, that all roads lead eventually to the mountaintop."
~cheryl strayed, from the book "tiny beautiful things; advice on love and life from dear sugar"
can i get an amen?
i mean...that's exactly what i would write if i knew how.
i love you, cheryl strayed.
my friend, debbie, gave me this book. she is my go-to girl for anything book, movie, theatre and
restaurant related. she's a keeper too, that debbie. she's given me a number of books over the years but this one seems to have "coincidentally" found it's way into my hands at just the perfect time. i have loved reading a few pages each night before i turn out the light. it's been a great way to focus a bit less on myself and turn my attention toward the plights of others...while still soaking in the wisdom from which each one of us, no matter our personal demons, can benefit.
and that's my hump-day nugget for ya. happy wednesday y'all!
