"I hold on to You for dear life, and you hold me steady as a post..." Psalm 63

Perspective...

It's cold outside...
Snow has fallen...
There's no Lacrosse game today...
And we're here...
peacefully stranded at home by the fire...

At least from where I SIT that is my perspective on the situation.
To my left, this is happening...
...and she is thinking otherwise...
She's tired of being home 
and
SURPRISE! 
would rather go to the mall...

To my right, THIS is happening
he is in his own contented-obliviousness

Behind me....
way down that way, where Scarlett is snoring around the corner

sweet, sweet silence...

Speaking of Scarlett...
This happened this morning

In the window of the sunroom, 
a burst of color is feasting

Sadly, Alex still had to work today-
No rest for drummers, apparently...


This is the kind of day mothers dream of...


"We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet,
 to love, to share. This is a precious moment, but it is transient.
 It is a little parenthesis in eternity. If we share with caring, 
lightheartedness, and love, we will create abundance and joy
 for each other. And then this moment will have been worthwhile."
Deepak Chopra

{*Deepak Chopra is some kind of weird dude...I just googled him.  I like this quote-but may not agree with one other thing he has to say...just putting that out there!}

I love that kind of day too.

Tim is working, Lindsay is at the store, and Emily just left to go shopping for a bit with a friend - but she did shovel the whole driveway by herself...

I like that quote too, but was surprised to see who said it!
