Life has been full.
pleasant. achy. lovely. hard.
I am in deep processing mode...accepting the fullness that living gives.
I have been quiet around here, and I may continue to be for a little while.
Tonight I kissed Asher's lips and whispered in his ear as I always do...
"Now go fly with your angels sweet boy."
"I will mama. I will."
Something about that made my heart so much lighter.
I will choose to offer safety and keep a gentle voice when I discover my four year old descending down from the tippy top tiny branch of a not-so-sturdy tree...with nothing on but a t-shirt and shoes. I will remember that indeed I was the one who encouraged him to go outside and do some birdwatching.
Today, I will choose to do my best to see the world through their eyes,
to hear it through their ears,
to feel it with their touch,
to taste and know and explore it with my whole self.
