lunch walk

on the boardwalk, panoramic river view
met the 300 Ducks
not worrying,
not resisting
some quiet, some squawking

light snow
very little breeze
'the Babe, the Son of Mary' running through my brains

no chapstick
no phone
'adventure is out there!'
push on to the end

at a thousand paces the boardwalk ended
turn around
oh oh! low sugar

couple of smarties...
not enough
the rest of them...
not enough
keep walking, get back
nutrigrain bar...
not enough
oh well, keep walking, push
staggering like a drunk
the tell-tale whitening of everything I see
almost back...

cross the road 3-2-1 STOP - but i can make it
stagger up the steps, to the hot room
fridge there with yogurt and fruit
sit down with spoon and cold goodness
across my palet and tongue
down the throat
bringing slow relief

wipe the sweat, log the carbs
back to work

thank You for getting me back safely

May there be reconciliation in broken relationships

Dearest Father~

This morning I am thankful for Jesus, His Life and teachings, His Death and Resurrection, for Your Providence and for Your Protection.
Thank You for the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of our LORD Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.
Thank You for our material goods, for food and drink, family and friends, life, loving, and laughter.

Thank You for the gift of You.

May Your Name be praised in all places at all times, Hallelujah!
