Let’s start with the fun, exciting news:
My son’s Eagle Scout court of honor was yesterday!
I have some nice photos from the day but won’t be sharing them until tomorrow because our computer, annoyingly, keeps crashing when I try to access the files. This made assembling the Court of Honor slideshow quite stressful, but the coffee and Redd’s hard cider saw me through.
(It was a long weekend. We survived.)
I’ll try to share the slide show too ’cause it’s a nice retrospective of Joe’s career in Scouts. I’m proud of him, my oldest son!
Here we are doing a last-minute trip to pick up food for the reception. I love that he wanted to bring his little brother and that Prince William was humble enough to check our groceries.
Speaking of humility…
Can I ask, how honest do you think you are? Bear with this jarring transition as I move from the honor of a Boy Scout to the theme of lying, but it has to do with my pastor’s homily on Divine Mercy Sunday and the April theme from the Netflix folks, both of which have to do with lying.
So look for that post on lying, too, because I’ve been thinking a lot about being honest with people, and how hard it can be to accept the truth.
Wasn’t there an actress named Temperance Bledsoe? Yes! She was one of the sisters on the Cosby Show, right? (I’m refusing to do a Google search, trusting instead my knowledge of pop culture.
(I’m quite good, you see, at all things 80’s.)
So anyway, yes, that elusive virtue called Temperance. I’m hoping to resurrect my Weigh-In Wednesday series because I need–how I need–accountability. Since I can’t afford a Fitbit, I’ll use this blog! Bear with me, please, as I struggle toward better health and fitness.
Even better, inspire me. ; )
