In this moment::
I am:: spending a lot of time in our rocking chair.
I am:: trying to soak up the simple pleasures of summer, like reading outside in a warm breeze
and taking time to notice the beauty of bubbles that climb the stems of pansies in glass
and watching my children watch the rain come down.
I am:: all about the mini dress. Because, well, just look!
I am:: grateful for the abilities Noah and Max and Lizzie have for reminding me how to play.
I am:: amazed that it is almost August.
I keep coming back to this awareness or understanding or prayer, this knowing of life gliding by so quickly. Because of that, we must be willing to stop and notice-- no, more than notice-- to stop and breath deeply and appreciate the simple and lovely, like the dance of wind on a blade of grass.
