I have been blessed so much this week. My heart is full of gratitude.
#3 We got to raft the river and feel peace and calm and I heard my daughters giggling together and we “played” with each other Oar battles and water battles and just great company. I remember what it’s like to feel that peace of the river where nothings exists but the here and the now. Being present is the only thing you can do. I get to do that more often.
#2 I have a husband who loves me and honors me. He knows this week is a busy week for me. He just says, “go ahead and take care of what you need to take care. You and me are good. I’ll be here when you get back.” (Because when I go into school mode I’m in another dimension.
#1 And the best part is that after 8 months, I finally get to see my Kendra girl. Alabama is too far away sometimes. It’s hard for a mama because I went from seeing her everyday to seeing her a couple of times a year. But when she’s here, I get to love love love upon her and it feels yummy.
I have a collaboration post for this afternoon from another wonderful blogger, so stay tuned….but after that, I might be off the grid for awhile. The first two weeks of school are pretty busy. Wish me luck! ~Love ya, Marie
My family has been teasing me because I’ve had such an obsession with flowers in the last few months. I stop everywhere to take pictures! I like taking lots of different angles. These are just a few of my favorites from this week. (The Iris was a late bloomer.) There are so many more pics I will have to share next Friday. They bring so much beauty into our lives! (For you Amy Rose – fellow flower freak…hee hee)
I LOVE texture! I’m a curious girl who is a kinesthetic learner. I like to touch everything!!!…consequently I also like to make everything a musical instrument because I feel rhythm all over.
This week my daughter took me with her to a business conference. While she worked, I got to check out the hotel. There were some great textures! The first one is of some posts that framed an entrance to a restaurant. They were in the shape of a vase and made of wood…it was carved! And the second was a mirror that was framed in metal. Very cool mirror.
And the last one is something my dad made for me for my 25th birthday to remind me of all the people who loved me in Texas.
