He always had one of those little aphorisms at the ready! But that particular one quietly embedded itself deep inside me and occasionally it floats up to the surface, a gentle yet firm reminder that can refocus my vision. So on Sunday morning we decided to skip church, bundle up, and go walking by the water instead.
The sun was bright, the air crisp, and we four landed on a bench together, soaking in the light and watching a lone sea gull head out towards the Bay. Before that, Frances and Gabriel had to set up a kids-only area in a little gazebo and take notes in their nature journals. I am so grateful for them, these strange, charming, and frustrating idiosyncratic creatures that came from another planet to live with us.
What a shining, beautiful morning to be out. We four needed that time together. It was a good choice!
And speaking of choices: I was so surprised and happy to discover yesterday that Homemade Time has been nominated for a "Best Family Blog" Homie award at Apartment Therapy. If you have a moment, would you consider showing your support and giving Homemade Time your vote? The nomination ballot can be found here.
Happy Monday, everyone!
