which means a few extra smiles are in order.
Actually, as much as Monday is sometimes a rude reminder of reality,
there is something fulfilling about the new to-do list (however daunting it may appear),
the promise of a new week to accomplish good things,
and the refreshment I feel from the Sabbath.
Today we're meeting policemen at Smith's (slightly different circumstances from this encounter with a policeman) and enjoying free "beverages" as part of their "Coffee with a Cop" program. Because evidently "Beverages with a Cop" doesn't have quite the same ring to it.
The boys will be thrilled to talk to the policemen,
and we'll all enjoy our free "beverages," sans caffeine.
Maybe we'll see the same one that was riding his bike past us a couple of weeks ago and stopped to give the boys police badges and color changing pencils.
Our city policemen are so friendly!
I'm also loving this today:
"Treasure [God's commandments] in your hearts and live the Gospel (joyfully). I promise that as you do so you will discover your best self--your real self."
