I finally got him to sit for me.
Oh! My goodness I’m thrilled.
A mother just needs photographs of her son.
and by the way. . . he really is Superman. He just doesn’t know it yet.
a full laugh shared on the stairs with my youngest. . .and then she blew me away when she acted like a fish
heart to heart with my oldest. . . he has so much to do
laundry all done
photographs of the one I’ve been chasing for so long
being up when with the sunrise
Fisherman home a half a day yesterday . . . always working
yellow watermelon causing everyone to wonder
“Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.”Mark Twain
that quote makes me laugh every time
A friend mentioned I haven’t posted lately and well. . . they liked my blog and I need to get on it. I laughed and thought, how nice of them to like my blog. . . I like it too. In fact I love these lists of years I have kept.
and well . . .
friends reminding me how much I like it here.
a rainbow of color drawn for me by my youngest
an idea for a photo
a few moments of time from my oldest in the kitchen
watching her make new friends all by herself
parties we are invited to to celebrate family accomplishments
she comes in and plops on the bed to talk
seeing her hair pulled back . . . away from that eye
I read this on bathroom mirror yesterday. I’ve read it before but, this time I wanted it to stick.
“Call to me and I will answer you; I will tell you great secrets of which you do not know.” Jeremiah: 33:3
I don’t know: there are brief moments in time when I think I know everything, and then this . . . reminds me I haven’t a clue.
that girl who loves music . . . making great strides
a mother’s day filled with children I love
flowers from the Fisherman
beautiful words I’ll carry forever
group photos I love
beautiful warm days
water from a stranger
talks with sons who fill up my heart
children keeping mothers on their knees
Today I get to tell you: she went to work.
And I’m reminded it’s the small things that can be the sweetest times of our lives.
driving her to work
watching her walk through the door @ the pizza shop
people happy to see her
full nights sleep, no coughing
kisses to me out the door
nothing to do this morning
giant lazy puppy makes me laugh in the early morning light as he wakes, says hello & goes back to his open crate sleeping the morning away
small talk with the neighbor
I rush to grab big camera.
I love these weeds with the fly away seeds.
. . . the pool was officially opened yesterday.
The South Carolina humidity, the heat, kids splashing, laughing, having fun . . . the signs are all here.
Summer is coming.
In the news: Our girl wants to try to go back to work tomorrow. . . just a few hours to start. Her cousin is the manager at the pizza shop she worked in before it all happened. He told her – her job was waiting for her when she’s ready. She says she wants to give it a try. He tells me he will be there with her the whole time. He won’t leave her side. It gives me much relief knowing he will watch over her like a nervous mother. It’s good practice for what’s to come for him. . . fatherhood. It’s just around the corner for this one.
We are starting to breath whole again.
Here is to hoping May will bring quite, peaceful days with less appointments and time on the road.
splashing pool water
peaceful time writing in a rose garden while the little one dances with her class
getting back to a normal
watching her read everything she can
talking to her friends
sharing a laugh
dinner cooked not by me
new friends sharing
the best Nana sharing her car . . . again
hugs from the sons who tower over me
sharing, talking with my girls
The last day of April was the Philosopher’s birthday. We used all the candles in the candles package on his cake.
That means next year I’m going to have to buy two packs just to keep up.
And, that also means he’s getting old.
I think I’m going to have to start lying about his age. . . too.
rain pouring down so hard you hear it hit earth
so many birthday candles you need another pack
help in the kitchen
giant puppies acting like they are small
