Mowing

It was a tough day, but one that was done in reflection. Jesus was the thought of the day and God had first place in it all. I think I kept myself so busy as to try to stop myself from thinking, but that didn't work too well. It did accomplish a lot though. I did have a wonderful time at one point while mowing the path in the woods. I had a moment of such absolute joy invade my being, it was wonderful. I thank God for his loving touch during a moment of sorrow for a loss in a job when an assignment is over. A weak moment and also a profound one.

I hope when I call Tuesday I will find out I will be placed at another job. When I had spoken to them when they called, it was mentioned about another place. But that isn't why I had calm, it is more from placing my trust in God. As understanding is part of what God is giving, then I can only rest in his hands.

One thing I did discover today, when I used the push mower I felt so good, not even tired. What a great way to get some exercise, unless it's getting to push it uphill then it can be a tough one. The garden is looking good and soon it will be weeding time if I don't get the newspapers laid down to keep them from taking over.

Lately there is so much that I would like to do and try to accomplish is cleaning up the grounds of some of the over growth and downed branches and trees. It all looks so overwhelming but little by little it will get done. My grandfather had cleaned up the grounds to the point that they looked like a park when he was alive. He also used to make maple syrup, that was quite a chore and a delicious one after it was collected and boiled. That was pepere's thing to do to keep him busy. They lived with us after memere had a stroke and changes in the Flats of Holyoke. There were definitely some fond memories about my mom's parents.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow, it is Pentecost, a glorious day.

So wonderful to have these memories of your grandparents. Did you have taffee-pulls after the syrup had boiled?

No, but once in a while we would have it boiled down more for the treat of sugar on snow. That was really good! The memories are always nice too.
