From the old, new is made again
So I'm in the Starbucks drive-through, when the barrista at the window says, "You've got trees on your car!"
I had spent the weekend getting my mother re-settled in her home, and on the way back to my own home, I stopped off for some iced tea for the highway. And yes, I had some trees on my car.
My mother's neighbors had cut down some big junipers and were getting ready to send them on to the landfill when I said, "Hold on there! I believe I can use that."
And so I shall. Stay tuned for details.
In the meantime, enjoy this day. Every four years we get a chance to renew ourselves as a nation. As with the junipers, we can take the old and make it new again.
