I've been working little posts in my head. Simple little posts that let me get done quickly, share a moment in our time, and be done. But so many of them run into frustration and downfalls, and that's now where I want my focus to be. I want to write about the beauty of where we are here and now. I sit down this afternoon to do just that, and first read SouleMama's most recent post all good ~ simply ten. Perfection. Just the inspiration I needed to sit down and finally make my way back into posting. Thank you, Amanda. So today I'm sharing Simply Ten Good Things in our perfectly crazy here and now.
My simply ten:
growing a little acrobat again
one sleeping soundly and three playing happily together
monarchs and caterpillars to care for and release
rained-on playdoh paint on my door
the feel of wool on my needles again
singing Happy Birthday in a barn
said barn beginning to look like a house
finally autumn sun
four children sheltering under pines
an 8-yr-old princess finding a furry new friend
And that is exactly what I needed today. A quick focus on the beauty and blessings that I am surrounded by.
