It was a quiet week. I delivered two galleries and started reconnecting with other wedding vendors. The winter is a great time to sit inside and reflect about the upcoming season.
Day 21: Soon, she'll be running ahead, collecting pine cones, pretty leaves and wild flowers, but for now, I get to hold her close and whisper in her ear to feel the wind, listen to the rushing water and look up at the tall, tall pines surrounding the path.
Day 22: Andy the Skunk watches for wildlife who might dare enter his domain.
Day 23: I have always loved our back yard in the fog. It seems mysterious, like an adventure is a few steps away.
Day 24: I keep lots of things in little jars in my office, including tea tags full of inspirational quotes.
Day 25: The love worn pages and tattered edges of prayer books well read by my great grandmother Julia and my grandmother Jeanne. My aunts, uncles and cousins sent a care package and when I unwrapped the box, the flood gates opened. Family heirlooms to provide hope and healing on even the hardest days.
Day 26: I cleaned up Lucy's room and rearranged "Team Lucy," she loves it.
Day 27: We took a walk and Lucy took a nap in the clean, fresh air.
See you next week!
