1. Sunday was our church's day of celebration, looking back on the past year and seeing all that God has done in us and through us as a church body. What a wonderful day - although we've experienced some hardships, including the death of our much-loved senior pastor - we've also experienced personal growth, unity, and a deeper level of care for each other and the community around us.
2. I always loved choosing courses - whether it was my own in high school and university, or helping my daughter in her first year or two of post-secondary education. Monday I had the pleasure of guiding my son through his first year university course selection process. He wasn't too excited about it (I think he finds administrative stuff stressful), but for me - what fun! He'll be doing two music courses, drama, medieval history and a required English course on academic writing. We both agree that it's a fairly soft entry into university after a year away from school. We want him to experience success to build his confidence. And he's a music major, so he needs those music courses anyway.
3. This is customer appreciation week at the place I get my hair done. Taking advantage of the opportunity to have a mini-manicure for free! This will only be the third professional manicure I've enjoyed. Even the mini version requires quite a bit of time.

5. Today is the 19th anniversary of my grandfather's passing. I miss him so much and think of him often. I'm very thankful for his life, his character and the legacy of faith he left Also for the volume of happy memories I have of him and the times we had together. I will never stop remembering or loving him and look forward to seeing him again.
