Lovely Beyond the Ordinary

My dad recently used this phrase to sum up how he felt about everything associated with a loved one who passed away many years ago.  The words kept playing in my head.  Walking Orelia to the park this morning, I was smiling from ear to ear at all the “lovely beyond the ordinary” things that caught my eye and ran through my mind.

  1. Man, Orelia is one beautiful individual.  I just love the way she prances to the park every morning with her tail wagging as if to say “Bring it on, day.  I’m ready for this!”
  2. It’s finally warming up in San Francisco.  The skies are blue and the birds are chirping with joy that the temperatures are back to 60+ degrees.  I’m pumped to spend more time outdoors this weekend.
  3. I can’t wait to head to Petaluma for another horseback riding lesson this afternoon.  Giddy up!
  4. I’m excited to spend the weekend celebrating the birthday of a good friend. Birthday cake, anyone?!
  5. Life is indeed lovely beyond the ordinary these days.

Have a great weekend!
