verbs

We stepped in the door just moments before the sky opened up and the storm began raging... and we watched through the window as the streets filled up and puddles grew deep. Inside, safe and dry... there was quiet chatter and the whisper of glaze-laden brushes scraping over bisque. Thinking. Creating. Spending time with my girl. And now we each have a new vessel for tea.

It is now my new favorite mug... full of verbs. A to-do list of sorts.
Dream. Smile. Give. Believe. Pray. Encourage. Kiss. Love.

Beautiful! Hubby and I did this one afternoon a few years ago. It was a lot of fun. I need to take my oldest to do this. I think she would enjoy it.

This was just what I needed to read today! I was feeling a little blue last night. . . wondering if I was a failure at blogging, wondering if I should keep at it or if it mattered. You've inspired me. I'm going to re-read your list of verbs and think of those words as my to-do list. :)

You have a true gift... well, more than one, actually. There's your wonderful way with words, and your ability to inspire... and that's just for starters. Lovely post, Dawn. Just lovely. And the cup is adorable.
