I went for a run with a friend.
I did some work that I hope will help others.
I FaceTimed with my nephew, who is wonderful.
I talked with my sister, who I adore.
I delivered homemade almond butter cups to people who deserve treats.
I walked my puppies, and cuddled with them too.
I answered the phone when a friend called for advice.
I talked to my farmers/friends at the market.
I made plans for tomorrow.
I made more plans for tomorrow.
I ate exactly what I wanted to eat for dinner.
I picked up a book I’d been waiting for at the library.
I drank wine, on my porch, with a friend as the world got dark.

Four years ago, when I drove into this town, I didn’t know what I would find. I didn’t know where I would fit. I didn’t know if I would last.

I had *no* idea that I would thrive.


So: cheers to adventure, to love, to friends, to growth, to joy. Cheers to taking a chance, when only a chance will do.

  1. Anna, I remember your moving out there and the uncertainties that you harbored. You had something else, too. Hope. From Hope, wonderful things can happen. I’m so happy that you are “thriving”! We must all live in hope. Brent

      Brent, I think about that phrase all the time now. I agree! Lots of love to all of you.
