dirty dishes


i was surprised how pretty i thought the dirty dishes looked this afternoon all lined up in the dishwasher (a pretty luxury in itself)…the sun was shining on them…they all had a place…they were my 30th birthday gift from jerry…dirty dishes are anticipation of change! a dirty dishwasher means that cleanliness is coming! if all of life’s messes were so pretty, so easily cared for…so full of promise. maybe they are more than we realize…or maybe i’m just tired…alas, the sun is setting, eliza is crying, the floor is sticky, and the dishwasher is quiet which means the dishes are ready to come out…

    They are beautiful. I still sometimes think about that coffee mug from your beautiful collection that I broke and then replaced with a color that probably doesn’t even match…just so you can remember me. :)

    When I read this, I said to Dad, ” She has your eye for beauty and your gift of putting it into words.” Thank you for taking the time to let us in on your musings…
