after an ugly day in the world, let’s all keep finding beauty in our own spaces.

Yesterday, on the way home from a wonderful visit with our family, the notification came to my phone that the Senate had indeed confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Regardless of one’s political leanings, this confirmation is so ugly and divisive, and feels to many of us as though it flies in the face of sexual abuse victims and women everywhere. It’s rotten. It just stinks.

After processing it for a bit, I began scrolling through my Instagram – and it was blowing up with friends expressing bitter outrage, understandably.

I am just sickened by this as well.

However, now that I’ve had some more time to consider, there are several things on my mind I want to share.

First and foremost, there is this:

God is in control. Not the White House, not the Congressional Majority, not the Supreme Court. I don’t mean that in a simplistic way. I believe it with all of my heart. He has seen us through thus far and will continue to do so.

However, that doesn’t mean that we aren’t to take action where we can.

So. . .

In a month, we have the opportunity to let those in the Congressional Majority know just exactly how we feel about this foolishness today:

Thank you to my friend Kristen for this fabulous pic.

Those who chose to charge ahead and do the dead, complete, politically motivated wrong thing deserve to be on their butts with no jobs come the first week in November. We deserve to be heard.

I am always an enthusiastic voter but I will be even more so this go round.

I know I am not alone in this.

And, finally, I reposted this poem this evening on my Instagram:

We can all still make this place beautiful.

Let’s not get so bogged down in the ugliness that is Washington DC that we lose sight of the beauty in our own worlds.

As I said earlier, when I got the notification, Courtney, Sara, Henry, and I were on the way home from a wonderful visit with our family:

Henry, me, Mom, & GJ cheering on our Crimson Tide.

My better half and Pop worked on a big project outside, we got to watch the game with our family and have a great visit, and we had one of Mom’s super yummy lunches. It was a lovely day.

We also stopped at the Peach Park and I got a fabulous white pumpkin for my porch:

And our GJ sent us home with the most amazing care package full of all kinds of whole foods to cook and yummy healthy snacks – and some kombucha!!! – and this beautiful sight:

I adore olives. I could just sit down with these and a fork. Thank you, GJ!

And a funny:

When we got home, the carrying case I ordered for my diabetic testing supplies was delivered – it’s about five inches tall – and it came with a tiny dust case – like it’s a Michael Kors handbag or something. Bahahaha!

I laughed SO hard at this lil’ dust case. A FANCY diabetic testing kit indeed. =D

My better half and I had a great evening watching more football and hanging out in our pj’s and now I’m piled up in my comfies with a weenie dog and a large grey feline about to get some rest.

I’m thankful for a lovely day in my little corner.

I hope you all had a good one in yours as well.

Keep seeking beauty there.

Be well, everybody.

Grace and Blessings.
