Tonight

Tonight I'm glad that we are back home in Quebec. I'm glad we are not in the car, driving 14 hours to get here.

Tonight I'm listening to the rain falling outside and thinking about this wonderful meditation by John Piper

Tonight I can also hear, coming softly from across the hall, my parents talking to each other on cassette tape that they made for my boys some years ago. It's a nice sound.

Tonight I'm filled with thanks for friends and the joy that comes from seeing so many of them today after a summer of being away.

Tonight I'm also filled with pizza. This is not a good feeling!

Tonight I know what I'll be doing tomorrow. Laundry. A lot of laundry.

Tonight I believe that I have regressed in my ability to speak French.

Tonight I love this song by The Low Anthem.
