|Letting the Sunshine In|
"Let the blessed sunshine in,
Let the blessed sunshine in,
Open up the windows, open wide the doors,
And let the blessed sunshine in."
This is a song my mother would often sing in the mornings, as she went around the house opening the drapes and windows. I don't know if there are any additional verses, who might have written it, or when she learned it. But I find myself singing this song most mornings, myself.
The weather forecast had said to expect rain, today, but there was bright sunshine, instead. So, I opened the drapes and windows and "let the blessed sunshine in". The forecast now says the rain is expected on Sunday night/Monday morning.
Today was a productive day. Today, I did office work for the most part. But, in between, I spoke with my friend's older daughter (no change in her mom's condition), dusted the living room, dining area, hallway, and family room, put away the washed dishes, cleaned the kitchen counters and did today's dishes, did a load of laundry, watered the garden both front and back (I had been holding off in case it rained, but I can't wait without watering until Sunday night), watered the houseplants, exchanged emails with a friend, had a phone call from another friend, and video chatted with my daughter. I still need to clean the litter box and sweep the bathroom.
