Good day! I usually meet you all on the weekend over a cup of coffee. However, if we were having a cup right now; I would tell you that yesterday, I jammed the tips of my fingers in a closing door. My pastor had to rush off to a wake service, after Sunday Mass. I volunteered to check our main doors, to make sure they were locked up tight. One set of doors did not seem right, so I pushed them open a bit. Still do not remember exactly what happened, but suddenly my left hand fingers were caught in the doors. There is no serious damage, a little bruising under one nail, and the fingertips are still a little sore. So it has been a little painful typing yesterday. Right now, I am using my thumbs on my mobile phone. Not quite sure this is an improvement.
Over a cup of coffee, I would tell that we had our first snow of the year! It was only a dusting, but I still had to brush our car off.
Over a cup of coffee, I would share with you my growing anxiety about this presidential transition. I have through a dozen presidential elections; and I do not remember it ever being like this. I have in the past reserved judgment until a new administration was up in running. But this transition, the opinions of people that they are bringing into government, quite frankly, scare me.
As I write this, I am watching a beautiful sunrise. I remember a quote from the writings of English mystic, Julian of Norwich: “All will be well, all will be well.” See you soon over a cup of coffee.
