fist pump tuesday

September 21, 2010

Here’s what’s making me pump my fist today:

1. Venn Diagram Love — Shared by my dear friend Frank, this cartoon made me giggle. (Gotta love Toothpaste for Dinner!)

2. Thirsting to Hear His Voice — This latest entry by my currently Ukraine-bound friend Cassidhe was really thought-provoking and stirring. It chronicles her time spent in a prayer community called Taize, in France, this past summer. I think I am in a place in life where I am beginning to long for God’s voice, so it was a blessing to read her reflections.

3.  Puppy Love — I was at my parents’ house yesterday, being a kind daughter and commandeering their washer and dryer to do a massive (MASSIVE) load of laundry. As I watched the Food Network and attempted to keep my niece from climbing on top of my head, I noticed a dog outside the house. Now, my parents don’t have a dog. This dog was a beautiful Brittany Spaniel and while it had one of those electronic fence collars, it had no tags and we had no idea who it belonged to. So, of course, I did what any sane person would do — I fetched him a dish of water and sat there, petting him and telling him how nice he was for about a half hour. I couldn’t get enough of those soft, floppy ears and his damp little nose. I wanted to steal away with him and we could live happily ever after.

Sigh. I really, really want a dog.

    Get one. Better yet, maybe one will come to your window.

    @ SJR!

    Once I eventually have a bigger place (and one that allows pets), it’s first on my list. Until then, I will just have pet-envy.

    Thanks for the mention!
    One of the things making my fist pump was definitely that venn diagram.
    And drinking tea made from fresh mint that I picked on the island in the middle of the Tisza River, just a hop and skip from my dorm. 🙂
    I hope you are well and that your first catering adventure goes splendidly!
