A Perfect Sunday Morning Date

On our one-year anniversary, MrH and I went to our favorite muffin shop and picked out some an abundance of goodies.  I believe we got the creamcheese coffeecake, a blueberry muffin, and a banana chocolate chip muffin.  Somehow I managed to pass up on the vanilla fig scone… mmmmm!  We took our food and coffee down to the Charles River where we sat and sunned ourselves with a gorgeous view of the river and various people recreating themselves (engaged in recreation… I mean!).  On these occasions, it’s amazing how right things feel, how peaceful and utterly whole.

Since a chunk of my job is to help people make meaning out of their national service experience, I had planned a little reflection activity.  We each grabbed a pen and some scratch paper and wrote about the lessons we learned this past year.  We talked about them, edited them, and realized we have it good!  Once we were done talking and loving on each other, we went to a local bookstore and picked out a journal to record our deep and important thoughts.  We hope to add to it each year.

Perfection.
