Friday Night

Yesterday was a long day in the bakery.  I finally got around to developing a recipe for healthy, delicious gingersnaps, made with freshly milled hard white wheat, yummy, local farm eggs, organic coconut oil, sucanat, sorghum, and double the spices.

Not only did they smell heavenly, they tasted great too!

My customers have led me to believe that man cannot live on bread alone, but needs a few goodies on the side, like cookies, chocolate cupcakes and baby spelt pound cakes.  Even though I do not have a sweet tooth, I am happy to accomodate these wonderful folks with my healthy version.  Which pleases my children to no end.

By the time the bakery products were packaged, the counters washed and dried, the floor swept, it was quite late and I was quite warm.  A cool breeze outside drew me to the glider in the backyard. 

Have you ever felt that magic moment where the air feels delicious?  I wanted to drink in the breeze as I rocked in exhaustion.  Stars twinkled.  Tree leaves rustled.  Nightime town noises murmured. 

It was kind of weird.  All of a sudden I felt so connected to God and the universe, sitting there in the glider in the backyard in the dark in our little town.  I prayed for my children, then so many faces came into my mind and as I prayed for them, a deep love flowed through my heart.  I prayed for them to know how much they are loved.  For each of my children and the dozens of other folks, friends, family, acquaintances, randomly appearing on my mind, to be able to be who they were created to be. 

I wish I could somehow express how magical it felt to be surrounded by sweet breezes, starry sky, fresh, healing air, loving dear ones all around the world, through tender prayers.  But I am running late and need to head to the Farmer's Market.  I figured if I jotted down a few notes it would help trigger the memory for me in the future when I need something to savor.

Ooh, gingersnaps. I remember eating them as a kid and they were spicy and kind of hot. They were also hard. I haven't had a good gingersnap like that since. Are yours like that? You said "double the spices."

Sounds nice sitting out there on the glider. You inspire me to take breaks like that. That's the whole point of it all, isn't it?
