I emptied my camera card last night for the first time in a week - a stretch I very, very rarely reach. The fullness of that card mirrored the fullness in my heart. A fullness of this busy blur of beautiful time that is right now. For right now is full of...
celebrations for a baby boy that is TWO! and growing more independent, funny and voiceful each day.
our first Thanksgiving At Home, shared with family...and all the profound gratitude that comes with that (and yet, is so hard to express).
marveling at the first snow of the season, our first snow at the farm.
a busy first season for my oldest ballet-dancing boy of performing in the Nutcracker...and all the magic, comraderie, and dancing that it holds for him. (and all the knitting that all the rehearsals are holding for Mama!)
a tree outside our door, waiting for a moment to bring it in and let the merry-house-making begin!
and a whole lot of holiday making, gatherings, and baking waiting in the wings.
There is no stopping the calendar or the schedule of goodness that we are all in the midst of. But, I try to let go and sink on into the beautiful blur, and joyfully ride this short wave of busy. In that time of letting go, the small and wonderful moments of right now become crisp and clear. Just like the photographs remind me.
