This long weekend has been filled with adventures!
On Saturday, I went on a jaunt with my mom to visit a Japanese “strolling garden” at the Shin-Boku Nurseries in Wentworth, N.H. It was amazing!! The sea of white rocks was so bright in the sunshine that I could still see it after I closed my eyes. Someday perhaps I will have a Japanese garden.
We had the chance to sit with the owners, Palmer and Debbie Koelb. Palmer joked that he’s been building Japanese gardens for over 30 years and hasn’t done a day of work in that time. We should all be lucky enough to work at pursuits that feel like play!

On Sunday, my friend Becky and I attended the Lancaster Fair, one of many county fairs in our area. We had a great time watching kids run steers (for non 4-Hers, those are cows) through a timed and scored obstacle course; a 4×4 and tractor pull; riding on the Ferris wheel; eating fair food; and more.
However, my favorite moment by far was when we were exiting one of the milking barns and I heard someone say, “You’re the Miracle Lady!” She went on to say that she comes home each day looking forward to reading what I’ve posted on The Miracle Journal! I am so honored and delighted.
Then today, I was in WalMart and SOMEONE ELSE said, “Oh, you’re the one who does the miracles!” She had been at the school presentation I gave last week and she recognized me.
I feel practically famous! To Maureen and Jeanne, thank you so much for making my weekend even BETTER!
