are the moments where I catch myself in the moment. LIke the other day when I came home to find this jar on my nightstand with the surprise gift from my little boys and a bedroom that smelled like a garden.
Imagine my heart ache when I came home the very next day to discover this:
This fleeting feeling of life surrounds my thoughts and my comfort comes in remembering the beauty while it lasted.
One of my favorite parts of listening to Henry’s growing vocabulary is how he takes ideas and makes connections that we as adults would never make. Like this morning we had a follow up foot appt. to his accident last week. Diagnosis: infection and needing antibiotics. He handled the hour well and so when he asked for a pineapple smoothie afterwards we said sure.
When he saw this out the window
He said “Look, a tree smoothie!”
My friend Sarah has a daughter named Fiona who is a petit three year oldwho lovingly passed on some awesome pairs of shoes.
So suddenly our little walker has a whole shoe collection (yay!)
but I think if it had been up to her she would have been fine taking home the play kitchen with the sound of a magical boiling pot that lit up.I wish I could include the sound she made..sounded like an “ohhhh” with a chuckle.
A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.
