This week, I am so thankful for our garden! Yesterday, I took one of Rutgers' tomatoes, some fresh basil, cream cheese and sliced onion to work for lunch. It is amazing to me how different a fresh heirloom tomato tastes compared to what you buy at the grocery!
I'm thankful, too, for my friends who reach out last week to share that they've missed me while I've been in DAR-world. Our summer workshops are over, and I am so excited to share in some girl-time with them this weekend!
Finally, I am thankul for the kids in my Sunday School class. They finally started back for the year a couple weeks ago, and I got to see them for the first time (as a class) on Sunday. A year ago, I commented to my co-teacher that I wasn't sure I could imagine our class as the confident, self-assured members of our parish that the class before them was. A year in, I've no doubt that "my" kids are well on their way.
What are you thankful for this week?
