Last night I woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep. I miss my girls.
I decided, after an hour of prayer, what I needed was something to hold on to. I reached under my pillow and pulled out Honey, Anna’s favorite blanket. I wrapped my arms around it tightly and held it to my face.
I fell back to sleep.
This morning Alice was playing as I was getting ready for our day. I could hear her talking with her sister’s babies. She is such a good little Aunt. I walked quietly into her room not to disturb her world and found her wrapping Baby Mary in Honey, just like Anna used to do.
She looked up and smiled.
Alice holding her big sister’s blanket ~ that is what makes my heart happy today!
Halloween 2017 ~ Somewhere Over the Rainbow ❤
Our little Dorothy, her rainbow shoes (she has ruby reds but refused to put them on), our not-so cowardly lion and, of course, the Tin Man make my heart incredibly happy.
No words tonight just one photo that fills my heart with happiness and graditude.
Today over at Portland Moms Blog I shared how Alice and I have been spending a lot of our time lately ~ getting messy and making art together.
The fact that Alice loves to create like her sisters makes my heart so happy.
One of these days I will post about our adventures this summer but right now it is bed time and there is no time to write.
That is what I said right before I took this photo.
Their relationship makes me happy today.
Life has been extremely busy for our family the past few months. Starting next week everything slows down and I am taking a break and regrouping for the rest of the summer (more on that in a later post).
Until then, we are making the final preparation for the Love Rocks Run, which is happening this Saturday, and making sure these two are loved and cared for.
I’ve finding the simple things in life are what I’m holding on to these days.
This piece of beautiful art made by my youngest makes my heart very happy today and will be cherished forever.
