plenty.



on the unfortunate side, i’m still semi-miserable, concentrated mostly in my top half. the lower half has very few complaints, although my legs and feet feel woozy. (is that weird? that’s probably weird.)

but on the happy side, today’s sky is clean like hope and the kids left for school bright and genial this morning (even the one who sometimes gets my goat because he is hypersensitive and headstrong and A Replica of Me). (much can be said for taking after your father in this household.)

and light pours thick through filmy glass, and the dust motes drift and glitter, and God’s brewing his dreams bubbly-full in our beings. our cupboards are never empty. we’re one day closer to our littlest.

and i’m sure we’ll have more snows, but still the ground stirs and wriggles soft toward spring.



this day is ripe with grace all around, and i'm undeserving but wildly thankful.

Wildly thankful...I want that. I'm not there today, but I am trying to train my senses to notice and record things to be thankful for.
