The sunsets lately have been spectacular ~ big strokes of fiery orange or delicate pink and purple swirls. As I drive the boys to their evening basketball practices I have been known to swerve wildly off the road to capture the spectacle on my cellphone such as this moment above. (Picture my boys sighing deeply in the backseat anxious just to get. to. practice. already!)
Can I just tell you how blissfully peaceful Liz Lamoreux's blog has been for me in the past two months? So much so that in light of my word of the year - create - I took a leap of faith and signed up for her Create Space on-line retreat. It runs for the next five weeks and has already blessed me deeply. This is a doodle I did in anticipation of the opening ceremony on Sunday. (Tomorrow's post will feature our first week's assignment which was to create a sacred space in our homes so stop back to see mine.)
I must be 39 years old or something because I have noticed a slow decline in my vision over the past year. This week I was reduced to wearing these magnifying reading glasses while reading The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown. No matter how cute they may be, they reminded me of my Grandmother and I had to chuckle to myself about this crazy process of turning into old people a little bit more everyday.
We spent a long, long evening in the ER on Thursday. KC (in the red) slipped horrendously while goofing in the bathtub and I thought he may have fractured his femur. He absolutely refused to walk on it for the four hours we endured in the ultra-boring and ultra-busy ER. My husband arrived directly from the airport and held my hand as we worried about growth plates, casts, not being able to walk etc...
Luckily for all of us, the x-rays turned out fine and lo and behold...
he walked out of the ER at 11:00pm. Thanks be to GOD!
