gift of life

the halcyon days of summer...

after having some of our people over last night, when the last couple left, we tiptoed upstairs to find the girls both awake, if barely, in kyra's room - meg in a carefully made bed of sheets and blankies - a sister slumber party.

woke up this morning to fort building and anticipation of molly's arrival, which will include not only a sleepover, but also an afternoon at pool and no end of girlish secrets and games.

kyra working happily on her summer homework project: inventing her own country and it's accompanying details... needless to say, it's an "all green, all the time", recycle-heavy island of preservation and conservation.

and holidae, my guinea pig cat, spread out on the desk in front of me right now, purring and lolling across the mouse and getting hair in my coffee.

all is right with the world.

I quit my Hebrew class today. And then I worked on a new garden here at Asbury with your mom the rest of the day. And now I'm listening to a little Black Eyed Peas. I, too, feel as if, even for just this moment, all is right with the world. Mmm.

I have a small tiny hope in my heart that you got your ability to revel in the common joys from me. Lately there have been lots of moments of deep peace for me. Even with a house full and having to make dinners every night. I hope it lasts for days - Mum
