Fantastic for Friday …


Here are five reasons I’m doing a happy dance today:


My computer was returned to me yesterday good as new! I’m going to spend the weekend editing photos and writing, as well as Pinning {have you seen the button on my side bar? You can follow me on Pinterest!}


Exam week is over for my two Middle Schoolers! They’ve worked really hard this week. So have I. It’s no fun studying with teenagers and realizing how much I don’t remember. We’re going out to dinner to celebrate which means NO COOKING DINNER FOR ME!


I’m going to spend this afternoon crafting with my friend and eating delicious lunch. Friends and food = happy me.


I ran at the gym last night without hating it. American Idol may have played some part in it, but seriously, that is a breakthrough for me.


Hannie B. is learning to play Clair de Lune {by Debussy} on the piano. This is the song that was playing when I saw pictures of my sister for the first time. I cry every time I hear it.  And now my daughter is going to know how to play it. Sigh.

You are having a fantastic day!

I know that Clair de Lune is a Debussy standard, well known and loved by all. Still, I can't help but feel a little possessive about it. It sums up a whole lot of emotion, transition, and revelation for me. Like a musical prayer, tentatively whispered and answered with an overwhelming swell.

Yeah, I feel a bit of ownership for that song too. Silly, but it is the backdrop song to one of the most important days of my life.

Well, gals, I didn't write it, didn't perform it, and don't possess it.

However, when it came time to put together the DVD for the Big Reveal, i am the guy who selected Clair de Lune as the accompanying music. And yes, Apis, I felt that it represented a musical prayer of thanks — for the miracle and joy of your success in finding us and vice versa.

Beautifully put Sam, Apis and Kernal. What a sweet gift it has been to watch from a distance your family joy in welcoming Apis into your lives. So many, many things to be happy about, so dance on Sammy!
