This morning, things were a bit shakey. An armed robber was on the loose and hijacked a car a block away from my office. Awesome. We were on soft lockdown for most of the morning.
But in the end, the day turned out great. My work got done. The sun was shining. I got into my car in time to hear the “Five O’Clock Whistle” on the radio station I listen to.
I hadn’t heard that sound in YEARS. YEARS!
Oh, and the pesky armed robber crashed his car into a tree this afternoon and is going back to jail.
Today, the fields in the forest preserve are turning a lovely warm shade of gold. There was not a single cloud in the sky as I drove home from work.
I stopped at the grocery store on my way home from work to pick up some delicious produce for a salad. I drove back to our cozy home, where the sun was streaming through the leaves on the trees in the park behind our house and kids were playing soccer and all the world was as it should be.
And tomorrow is my 6 year wedding anniversary to an amazing man. Does it get any better? I think not.
Even though we’re going through a lot with the fertility biz, our cups run over with all of the blessings God has given us.
So hey, it’s a Chicago September Friday. It’s beautiful and delicious and vibrant all at the same time.
God is good.
