Mauri’s in his fourth and final week at the coast. You’ve seen some of the camera shots he’s passed my way (the last series included). Here are a couple from this morning. He took this one before morning prayers…

Nice, huh? He’s had another good experience being part of the leadership of the January retreats. I’m real glad for this opportunity…for him and for me. While the cat’s away the mouse does projects. These usually involve pulling things out of the attic or the closets to sort and reorganize or toss. With Mauri’s blessing I added two boxes of MMR Ministries envelopes to the recycle bin. MMR Ministries was the singing ministry of Mauri and Margaret-Rose. So, maybe we don’t need to keep those envelopes longer than 20 years for sentimental reasons. Or these either:
The leftover pictures from our wedding invitations. We’ve changed a lot in 13.5 years.
Since I’ve been releasing attachments to stuff, maybe you can help me decide whether to keep or toss these:
It’s just a bowl of blocks, you say? Would it be just as meaningful to keep this?
A picture of the building accomplishments of son Ben 36 years ago.
I have a pretty good idea of his response to that question. “You mean to tell me you’ve packed and moved those blocks from Tallahassee to Durham to Weaverville to Waynesville to Chattanooga to Grand Rapids to Newberg?” Right, Ben?
