I let my head fall back, and I gazed into the Eternal Blue Sky. It was morning. Some of the sky was yellow, some the softest blue. One small cloud scuttled along. Strange how everything below can be such death and chaos and pain while above the sky is peace, sweet blue gentleness. ~Shannon Hale

Thankful for cousins who want to play together so much that stopping for a picture isn’t going to happen. And the craziness that ensues when they are together (reference the ponytail in W’s hair). And Walker’s voice. And the fact that he told the TSA agent that he changed his name to Simon and that he couldn’t remember what his name used to be.


Thankful for another game of Qwirkle with my mom.


Thankful to be driving through beautiful Kansas on the way to Colorado. Love this blue sky day and this goat.
