I’m Grateful for: The little things.

The past couple weeks have been as ‘normal’ as life gets for us. And, oh, how lovely that is – sometimes – for just a short time – just to catch up in between the excitement which makes up the rest of life – of course.

It has been a week to enjoy the little things around here:

*Last weekend we celebrated our Nicholas turning 11. Really… they do continue to grow these children of mine. And I feel so privileged to have a front row seat as this maturing is happening. It’s really quite an honour to be a part of the life of this eldest boy of ours.

*The littlest one ‘practicing’ the piano after the big ones have finished. Then he proceeds to do his own ‘school work’ of course. It must be such a delight being the youngest of four, having those big kids around to copy and learn from.

*The children all found cozy beside the bookshelf. All happily intent on reading the very same book.

*The sunshine streaming in the windows.

*The therapeutic rhythm of knitting needles working some wool into a wearable garment. It’s really a meditation of the hands and I’m enjoying it immensely right now.

*Filling the hours with books both old favourites and new.

Yes, the little things are definitely the right things to be enjoying around here right now.
