"By concentrating on the smallest elements of our lives we see that we are part of a greater wholeness. When we try to take care of the smallest things, the deepening process begins."
Alexandra Stoddard in Grace Notes
A sunny Monday morning in late February finds me concentrating on small elements. but first the big... My daughter Kristen will have sinus surgery early in the morning on Tuesday. Kris is much more guarded in expressing her feelings, than I am. I was surprised that she posted about her anxiety about tomorrow on face book. We are very much alike, even though I hear a lot of ...Oh Mom. She's my first, my only daughter and I love her so much. I am very anxious myself, but my kids all know that. If you are so inclined, please remember Kris in your prayers. My job is taking care of a certain small girl, so I won't be with Kris tomorrow, but my heart will, with my prayers for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.
Later today I'll be cooking for my son Jon. We have already celebrated his birthday together, but I have to mark the day by making one of his favorites. Happy Birthday dear Jon Jon. Wishing you good health, happiness and love always.
Now for the smaller elements...
A few real plants are making me itch to get outside and plant.
Adding all these elements, makes my house a home for my sweetheart, our family and friends. It also becomes the home I always dreamed of, with all it's imperfections...just like me...a work in progress.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for all your kind comments.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
