I woke up to a smiling toddler and a text message from a friend "singing" happy birthday to me. Its a gorgeous western Montana morning, with sunshine and flowers everywhere, and I'll be spending the day at a remote mountain lake with my kids, my parents, all my brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews and quite a few cousins.

I can't say beyond a shadow of a doubt, but I'm reasonably certain that heaven looks an awful lot like western Montana in late June--a glimpse of the world as it should be.

Its going to be a glorious day.

Yes, happy belated birthday. I thought of you on your birthday...does that count? I'm pretty sure you are right about heaven looking like Western MT! Oh how I miss my MT...soon...very soon. Sure wish our trips would have overlapped this time around.
