Today I am thankful for…

January 17, 2009 at 4:24 am 2 comments

*hot lemon and honey to soothe sore throats on a sleepy, cold day
*”look mama, i’m writing letters to kai”, showing me sweet scribbles and newfound pride, then running out to pile the mailbox full of love
*baby legs standing up every chance she gets…where does that determination and strength come from?
*Amanda Soule and The Creative Family for inspiration to knit and sew and feed the creative juices (and have more babies)
*colored wooden blocks scattered everywhere and diggers to pick them up
*fresh costumes for dress up box from vintage clothing sale
*knitting for peace group started by a friend
*new issue of Kindred magazine arriving on the doorstep, along with My Neighbor Totoro, a gentle, child-friendly movie to share
*a happy papa arriving home from skiing and, amazingly, keeping the inner martyr at bay!

What are you thankful for today?

    Inspecting beautiful snow crystals painted on everything this morning and a warm inside to return to when we’ve finished.

    *the ability to nurse away tears after a fall.

    *getting SO much support from other mama friends

    * hearing “mama I want to make a fairy”, and then making one

    * hearing “mama where is my fairy” over and over throughout the day.

    *papa offering his sense of humor when all else fails

    * the goats jumping into the back of the truck and making me laugh out loud.

    * coffee in the morning after a restless night

    * two little warm bodies that snuggle up to me every night and feed my sleeping soul
