it is Monday
and for my 12 year old's birthday
(in addition to all of the other goodies, of course)
i gave him something that money cannot buy
(well, at least not his money)
I told him i would take out the trash
for an entire MONTH!!!
needless to say,
he loved that.
as i was lugging our one bag out the door,
headed for those
a warm breeze whooshed across the yard,
through the beautiful blooming jasmine
and right into my nose.
all of the sudden
that trash bag
became a beautiful blessing.
the day is warm,
the sun is out,
our orange tree is heavy with citrus,
