Today I love Tuesdays that work right out of the box. I love when they start out being exactly what I ordered and then reveal themselves to be even better. I love how there are Tuesdays that just go above and beyond the call when they get right down in the weekday trenches and start digging in to the jobs at hand. I love how Tuesdays always seem to know what needs to be done and are happy and willing to tell me what those things are if I just take the time to listen carefully. I love that on days when I cannot listen, Tuesdays are often willing to scream at me until I catch on, good old Tuesdays. I love that every day of the week seems to have a flavor and Tuesday’s flavor is one of those good ones, not so exotic as to be pompous and not so bland as to be dull, somewhere in between where it is considered tasty without being ineffective and nutritional without being unpalatable. I love that every Tuesday I’ve ever known has done its absolute best to be all it could be for as many people as it could manage to serve and this one seems to be just like its siblings, all Tuesday, all the time. I love that today, Tuesday, has arrived and is already on the job, like a good contractor who knows what to do and how it should be done, and just does it.
Today I love neighbors who have been friends. I love the feeling of knowing that a neighbor was a good person and I love missing them when they are gone ’cause it’s your hearts way of telling you that they were one of the treasures in your life that had true value. I love that neighbor that you know you’re going to make small talk with as soon as you see them in their drive when you get home or come out your front door, no matter what the day has dumped on you or what you have weighing you down. I love the neighbor that you can set your timer on from the moment they say “Hi” until one of you is going to laugh because you both know that there is enough grief in every life and more of that isn’t what we need. I love that I’m finding myself missing my neighbor Ron today, shows he was one of the good ones, rest in piece, neighbor.
Today I love curling because I’m bad at it so I can have good games and they make my week, or bad games and they make me laugh. I love golf because I can go play that when the weather allows and I know that just like curling, I have lots of room for improvement. I love dragon boating because it takes me home to the water and that will always be a good thing.
Today I love sipping Tuesday Coffee and thinking Tuesday thoughts about all the Tuesday things I need to take care of today
