For these moments

10 Sep

This weekend was near perfect.  The weather.  The pace.  The activities.  There was the Farmers Market, a slow walk with endless questions from the three year old, uninterrupted play with a cardboard box.  Followed by church, naps, baking, and dinner.

This morning seemed to jolt us.  Beginning the week with a thankful heart feels like the best place to start on this Monday morning.

  • Miss Sophie talking to the farmers, and paying them for our veggies
  • the same Miss Sophie then eating all the lettuce she picked out
  • hoping the farmers also noticed her pretty dress she wore the market
  • perfect early September weather : crisp, sunny, breezy, warm enough for boots
  • but, then way too hot once noon comes along
  • weather so perfect we couldn’t stand to be indoors
  • so, we headed to the park with friends
  • pesto, pesto, and more pesto made and ready for the the cold winter months when we are only dreaming of the sticky summer days when basil grows
  • the search for our rhythm
  • and in the midst of the search seeing that somethings may have to be altered or just plain let go of
  • weekly planning sheets found for free online, so the wheel doesn’t need to be reinvented
  • mornings so cool that I need a shawl to drink my coffee outside
  • the anticipation of beginning a new apple unit with my little ladies this week
  • calmly readjusting attitudes when I am sure even a month ago I would have lost it
  • little hands that stir the zucchini cake
  • big hands enjoying the cake
  • another day for us all to be together because these are the days I will long for just as much as the perfect ones as time goes by

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

++ joining with ann and amanda this morning.  why don’t you join them there?  they are two of my favorites.
