When You Awake

I am so excited about Scott's shows on Wednesday and Thursday. I am eagerly looking forward to hearing him play and hearing Mike play with him.

Mike is an unusually gifted human being himself. A Rhodes scholar with degrees in English from Duke and Oxford as well as degrees in Hebrew and Jewish Studies from Oxford. He's also married to the beautiful and sweet Rebecca, herself a Rhodes scholar. In addition to being too smart, Mike plays a mean guitar and draws/writes the brilliant Satisfactory Comics with his partner Isaac.

Of course, on top of all that, he's a sweet, kind, decent, fun human being. As is Becca. Again, I'm feeling very blessed to have such wonderful friends.

Clearly there is a reason this theme is revealing itself to me....God to Dawn...Listen you crazy bee-atch! You are one lucky girl to have such amazing people in your life. Be thankful. Be happy. Celebrate and enjoy the amazing life you have been fortunate enough to have created for yourself and to have been welcomed into through your union with Scott.

So, I will. Thanks, G. For all the good stuff. And all the bad stuff that makes me appreciate even more all that I do have.

Oh Dawn, you are so awesome! I had a moment of relization this week too! It is so good to recognize and count our blessings =)

Awww, thanks sweetie!

I feel so very lucky to have come to know Mike's friends from college, who are an incredibly talented, close-knit, and inimitable group -- and then their lovely partners & spouses, whose open hearts and minds and souls are no less remarkable.

It's truly been a joy to get to know you and your growing family over these past years. You are one of the strongest, most creative, and most beautiful women I know: belle, yes, but also brave et bonne.

And you have such an eye for beauty, and an enjoyment of life -- I'm still loving the pretty pretty toenails from my first-ever pedicure that Thursday morning in Atlanta after the RUSH concert! :)

You shouldn't be surprised that you have wonderful people around you: you yourself are a wonderful friend and wonderful person!

Come see us soon!
