the thirteenth

On our recent visit to London, we stopped in at Westminster Abbey. Normal tourist visiting hours were done for the day, but we were allowed to sit in on a non-Catholic service.
It is one of the most amazing places I have ever had the opportunity to be.
Simply breathtaking.
Without the simply.


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for my most comprehensive and difficult and thus, rewarding, workout yet

for Step 3

for the good stuff that happens when I let go and the good stuff that happens when I don't try to stay in control of everything

that Hayden made it home safely

for soups and salads and a place called Souper Salad

for all of the things that Houston has to offer; do any of you actually know what Houston has to offer? HUH? ~~~Click here~~~

for the silliness of Pam @ Sobriety is Exhausting -- pay her a visit when you can

Hearing is one of the body's five senses. But listening is an art.

Hey..thanks for the mention!
I love Souper Salad, but my tendency is always to pile on more than I can eat (more,more,more). I wish I could connect rewarding with workout...like you and MC and so many others. Keep talking about it and maybe the rewarding stuff will rub off on me, preferably without the WORKout part.

G'morning, dAAve. The cathedral looks incredible. I have been to Notre Dame in Paris. Wonder how they compare?

Dear dAAve,
what a wonderful experience. Thank you for the photo.
I'm happy for you and Hayden. I remember back when I first met you.
It is a fantastic love story with a happy ending. It's nice to know that it really does happen.
See you around campus. Love you.
