For these moments

13 Jun

This morning, I am

:: marveling at my first baby being old enough to be at dance camp this week.

:: proud of what a beautiful little girl she has become.

:: wishing to savor all the precious moments of them still all being my babies at the same time.

:: shocked at how quiet a house can suddenly become when one sister is away, one is sleeping, and one wants to use the doodle app on my iphone.

:: smiling at how Sophie only wants to be without any clothes at all, in her bumblebee costume, or her pink dress.

:: delighted at how our tomato plants are doing this year.

:: watching all the little chickadees who have been visiting us on our new bird feeder.

:: thankful Eva’s top teeth have come through and she is sleeping better.

:: wondering if that means I need to hold myself to my promise to begin running soon.

:: wishing all of you the happiest of Mondays in which you can have a moment to stop and enjoy.

For these moments, these pauses, the grace of God in the moment, I am so thankful.

    it’s always different when one of them is away, i find it rather shifts the balance and takes some getting used to. especially since we homeschool, we’re so used to all being home and being together. we have lots of green tomatoes on our plants too, some ripening. every time i see one i am filled with hope.
