what do u want?

A few years ago, a work situation allowed several coworkers and I to retreat (or to be led in retreat) with Ruth Haley Barton. As part of that retreat, she described a birthday celebration where her original plans were transformed when she honestly asked herself, "what do you want?"

Today I joined several other people who were recipients of that question, not with Ruth, but with our friend Jordan. It is her birthday and she wanted a lunch with girlfriends. A mere 22 of us!! from all different walks of her life.

This is a cute wee photo of Jordan and her Mom.

Happy Birthday lady!!
I celebrate the life of Jesus in you
and rejoice in the woman you continue becoming!
