It's All God

 I was hungry today.  Right now, I'm sitting here watching The Gilmore Girls- The Later Years.  I don't know what it is called.  It's the one where they are old and there is no Sookie (Well, not in the beginning).  I haven't finished the series and this would be the end.  I started the series out with my daughter and she left me to fall in love with Anime.  Lorelai, the mom is getting married... FINALLY- to Luke.  They are talking about the wedding and out comes the donuts, which brings me back to me being hungry today.

I have a confession.  I did something weird and wonderful today.  I sat in the parking lot of the Sprouts and ate a few tacos.  They came from Jack in the Box.  I was in an air conditioned car munching very happily on cheap, bad tacos that tasted like everything right in the world.  As I sat there in the air conditioned car crunching on these tacos, I marveled pretty deeply on how good God is.  That kind of blissful moment I want to put in a jar and pull it out on crazy days when I need to remember the good in life.  

I bought some Sprouts sushi because the one by me makes it fresh and it isn't on sale on Wednesdays.  I found gluten-free cupcakes with lemon icing which ended up coming with me.  I got in line with a cashier.  I don't like self-check out.  I wait on a line with a cashier.  I feel like she is necessary and keeps her job when I use a cashier.  The woman who was being checked out had a whole cart of food that she was buying.  I didn't begrudge her her cart as I stood there with my few items.  I did note that the cashier was a little on the slow side but I was still very happy from my tacos.  It was when they came to the end of her list and she was shocked at the price. She consulted her phone and then... And then... I watched her as she picked out four things and said she wanted the rest of the order voided.  The cashier started voiding each item one by one.  By this time, the sweet woman in front of me had let me go ahead of her as she had a cart of things.  I wanted to be mad at her.  I really did.  I wanted to record it all and post it on a news site.  She turned to me and said, "I'm so sorry."  She had four items that she had decided to buy from a cartful of food.  It was like half an hour before a manager came over and deleted the whole ticket.  

I ate a gluten-free lemon icing cupcake just a few minutes ago.  I love lemon flavored everything.  Geoff and I went to Lowe's the other day and he asked me if we would have a fruit tree in our backyard.  I said, "Yes, lemon or orange.  I love orange blossoms."  The blooms on the lemon trees were ready.  We sniffed the flowers.  (Lorelai and Luke are talking about their wedding and feeling married already, right now on the show.) I feel so much like Rory just said, "I want to remember it all."  Me too, Rory.  I think about my great God. Who am I that You think of me?  May I always find the core of who I am in You, Lord.  God, bless my family, please.  Bless them all!!!

It's time for bed and I continue to be thankful for Royal Blue pearlescent nail polish.  I am grateful for my job as exhausting as it is.  I am thankful for my children and my home.  I am thankful for what will be.  I am all over the place today.  Lemon pastries that make me think of a lemon tree and home.  Happy Tacos that bring me happiness in a Sprouts parking lot.  Women that don't remember that today is not Wednesday so the sale at Sprouts don't start.  Enjoy your mango, cucumbers and halibut, Lady.  Most of all, thinking of of my Great God and being happy to find love again.  God.  It's all God.  Praise the Lord!!!
