The Beautiful Thanks

Posted on

A little late is better than never, right? Someday, I will get back into that writing groove, but for now, He calls me to live and think and process and learn to love in the right here, right now. But the thanking continues….

#502 soft, pink ballet slippers and her telling me they’re “pointe” shoes (I don’t even know how to spell it! Is it “point” or “pointe”?)

#503 labor and delivery nurses in all their realness and beautiful hope

#504 sweet, young mamas-to-be, lip rings and red hair – taking it all in, writing it all down

#505 sweet begonia blooms

#506 Feather Ellas . . . flowers with their own given names

#507 a sweet, intentional friendship in my children’s lives . . . her legacy weaved in our lives

#513 all the hugs and reassuring lovepats from the tiniest in the house

#514 sisters, arms wide open in welcome

#515 *my* sister, asking for a visit
