Why Z, YZ?

I have been thinking. Yes, I do that once in awhile, even though many days (lately) I prefer to NOT think. Or maybe I mean, not feel? Whatever. Regardless, what can I say about Y? And, what can I say about Z?

Y: Yellow. Not exactly my favorite color. For example, I NEVER wear yellow - I simple do not do the color justice - and it does not suit me, either. But nonetheless, I love yellow - the color of sun, of warmth, of flowers, of butter and cheese (ok, favorite foods), of paint - as in wall color. I like yellow walls, and if I stay in this house I will paint a few walls a deep yellow, desert, late summer, kind of yellow. Yellow with a little brown in it. That color, or this color, of yellow.

Yes, Yup, Yesterday, Yuck, - all words I use often - grateful for that. I like to think that today will in fact become, yesterday. Gone, past. (sometimes a good thing). I like that there are times, things, circumstances, hopes, joys, loves, that I say "YES" too - or at least, "YUP." Of course there is always something I end up saying, "YUCK" too. (sigh, yuck)....

then, there is still, "Z"...

Zoo - oh I love zoos. I have had so much fun with family and children at zoos. I love seeing animals I would otherwise never see. I do prefer zoos that create, as best as possible, "natural environments" for the animals. I'm not into "caging" animals, if you know what I mean.

Zyrtec -good gracious, the most recent allergy med that helps me, is this one - or the generic version thereof.

Zippiety do dah - zipppety yay - wonderful feeling, wonderful day! This is in thanksgiving for Mrs. Lloyd, my second grade teacher who played this on the piano every morning as a way to start our class. I loved her and still have a post card she sent me some 45 years ago.

Zippers - well, don't you agree?

Ok. For better or for worse, I have managed to zip through an alphabet meme of gratitude.

The readings that we chose for the service tonight were all picked specifically for this service because they lift up the role of women ...
