For my birthday, my friend Katie and
my brother Danny (with sweet Valeri)
collaborated on a project.
Dan and Val cheerfully drank wine and saved corks.
Katie took saved corks and made a cork board.
All our years together, Curt and I have had a picture board in our kitchen.
Packed full of photos.
Now we have a cork board.
My favorite section below, because…
Dan calls his wife is la Bella.
I love la Bella.
If you knew her, you would too.
I have instituted a new plan.
I found when the board is stuffed to the gunnels with pictures
we ended up not seeing anything.
Just like the front of your fridge, right?
So I plan to put a very few pictures up,
change them regularly,
and use the pictures as a reminder to pray
for our friends, especially when we give thanks for dinner.
Thanks KGB, dharperino, and la Bella.
