Surprise...


So coming home from taking the ladies to school, I find this happy snow friend smiling out at me...a nice surprise on a chilly Michigan morning!!

I also got this little quip on a calender a friend gave me for my Birthday for women who do too much, and I really feel it is one of those things we let slip as wives, mothers, and really just as women...we spend so much of our days caring and tending and managing the worlds we move in that we forget to make time for wonder...
"Children can return us to wonder if we let them. We women who do too much need to exert great caution- perhaps even more than most people- not to lose wonder in our lives. It can slip away so quickly and so unnoticed."

I love the time after the girls have just gone to school when I get to come home and light candles and gather my books, grab a hot beverage, and listen to the silence...well usually I would pick silence himself has on RTE News on the ipod this morning which I must say is killing a little of my peace...but this morning calm is something I treasure and makes me smile and brings me a heartful of contentment and puts my crazy world in perspective... Yeah spirit!!!!




And the best part of the time while the ladies are in school...


Is time with this guy!
