These are the days of energy and play and spirit.Of three young boys learning power and strength and kindness from the two people who love them the most. These are the days. The good ones,The hard ones,The long ones,The plain ones,The ones filled with zest and action. The ones that drain you,That fill you,That leave […]
Hidden in plain sight.In the ordinary, regular, moment by moment everyday. Within the familiar routine and often at the center of the simplest of times we find it. The gift. The gift of time.Of laughter.Of growth. The gift of each other.Of baby laughs and stolen kisses. The gift of tiny toes and little fingers. The […]
Love them and lead them.Look in their eyes and listen closely to their hearts. Play with them.Imagine.Dream. Hear them and heed the unique gifts and special skills woven into their little beings.Encourage them.Inspire them.Spur them on. Let them know when they fall, you’ll be there to lift them again.See them and know them. And then […]
It wasn’t just the life they had as one.It was that no matter what life brought their way, they’d be one. It was walking the mountaintops and traversing the valleys.It was being beside and behind and for each other. It was overcoming the hardships and celebrating the victories. It was life with each turn and […]
Where joy is seen and wonder felt.Where rays of sunshine grow from hundreds of golden petals spread full, spread wide watching rays of warmth from above. Where laughter is heard and love is witnessed.Where days a months stop and they just are. Where sisters see the gift of friendship.Where husband and wife understand the strength […]
They had this happiness that seemed solely contained within themselves. A spirit of love just to be with each other. There was life.There was laughter.There was vivacity and energy and spirit. The warm Summer light danced among their voices and twirled with notes of delight. Whimsy and play till the final glitters of light flickered […]
From far and near they came together.Where heart was home, where family tarried and where rest remained. A family grown to families grown to growing families.Cousins and brothers and sisters.The gift of time filled by the gift of the people beside them. Generations establishing a legacy.Children carrying it out. Laughter danced between them and conversation […]
In curious wonder they saw the world.Beautiful and full of light. You could see it in their eyes. Delight in the things they saw.Joy in the pure way they approached life. Three sisters.Content to be with each other and living in the winsome world of childhood. The way it should be.
There was this kind of quiet contentment about her.The way she mothered.Loved.Cared. Still and sure of her role.A peace about her. And together as parents of two, there was harmony.Consistency.The perfect kind of give and take. Now they were four.Big sister and little brother and parents too. They were now, they were forever, family.
In morning light, while the world slept, three little brothers ran through field.Energetic and lively and fun. They played and jumped and laughed (as all kids should). They let their imagination tell stories.They were in each moment without pause or hesitation. As they grow and become and mature, they’ll do so with the other two […]
