I Love (ie. They make Me Happy a little early)

I have received such support in the last few days. I am here to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'm still a mush head, but it's not that difficult for me to put together these lists, so here's a new one. And the number one thing I love this week are my readers. I feel like I've known some of you forever. And you don't hesitate to share your support, wisdom, and love.

:: When Will comes to me for magical kisses that "make it all better."

:: My grandfather's piano
:: Odilon Redon's pastels
:: St. Denis, mostly because after he was beheaded he picked up his head, walked six miles preaching a sermon the entire time, and then cleaned his head off in a fountain. And he's the patron saint of headaches (I think he more than earned that distinction).

:: That fall chill in the air
:: Long naps holding my William
:: Um, did I ever mention that I love cats?

really? he was able to deliver a sermon without a head? now, that's miraculous, albeit a little creepy...

Love your list! I'm also looking forward to fall weather. We don't have that chill yet but I'm ready for it!

Mom2fur said...

It's the little things that keep us happy, isn't it? I had a little trouble figuring out the last picture until I read how you love cats. It looks like some kind of strange plant, like a giant pussy willow puff!
That is an amazing and somewhat funny (although probably not meant to be) story about St. Denis.

My mom sent me a box of "treasure" once. It was a box of my grandfather's letters. These were letters he'd written to me as a child. I'm so glad I saved them.
Great post. I especially love the picture of you and your cat.

It's so great to focus on gratitude and fun things. Hope you're feeling better.

I chuckled at the saint's determination. Wow!

I have a birthday this month too. I heard really good people are born in September. True right?

Tracy said...

Hi Erin! I'm stopping by to let you know I'm now following you on GFC! Great blog! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment :) I enjoyed reading about St. Denis! I love reading the Saints lives to my children and the one I LOVE to read to my children everyday is: Saints for Young Readers for Every Day (Vol. 1 goes through the first half of the year and Vol. 2 finishes the year). This is a great book for young children because each day has 1-2 pages about a saint. I have learned alot and learning more about these interesting lives has brought me to fall more in love with Christ and His Church. :) Here is the link if you want to read more about this book: https://store.pauline.org/English/tabid/56/CategoryID/561/List/0/catpagesize/25/Level/a/ProductID/2871/Default.aspx

Have a blessed day!
