Grace Islands in The Sea of 2018
|In the middle of the storm, Donna and mom came to visit for Jaime and Trampus' annual Halloween Party that Dean and I always go to. This year's theme was Tim Burton and we went all out. We pregamed at Olive or Twist and shot a Geek Parlor in full costume! The laughter, the escape was good for my soul.|
|And then there it was, the dream, and Airsteam right in front of me. It was like God was saying, "this isn't the end, hold on to your dreams, I see you." and Bruce Springsteen sang Born to Run while I wept.|
|I've watched all four of Dave Chappelle's stand-up specials on Netflix several times this year. They are deep, hilarious, profound perfection.|
|All the visits with my great niece's and nephew, the innocence and their sweet love is grace personified.|
|2 miles at 5:30am, walking, jogging (when my knee isn't acting up) with Dumas. Arriving back home to Bella waiting for us. This time each morning was literally fuel for the rest of my day.|
|He's not an activist by any stretch but my Steele found himself walking arm in arm with the youth across American demanding gun reform and it made this mother so proud and happy to walk along side him that day.|
|The many trips we made to New Orleans to watch Evangeline MC at Cats Meow and to do Karoke. So proud of her using her talent as a performer to entertain the people of Bourbon Street.|
|Bar tending all those LSU games with these two, wow, what a treat! So much fun! Lord those Jamison shots! Such an escape and we was making that cheese!! Geaux Tigers!!|
The Geek Parlors were all just a joy to do. I love having discussions about pop culture, politics, fashion, food, whatever and I especially love that I got to do them with beautiful people who bring light and grace into any environment they enter.
|And the year started off with a dream coming true, Dean got me tickets to see katy Perry and I got to go with Esther!|
All is not lost.
Much love and Grace to you all.
