Monday And The Things I Love
Monday is the traditional beginning of the week for many people. It is here as well although we enjoy a great deal of flexibility. But daddy returns to work and we miss him so sometimes it can be a bit hard for us. So I think I am going to start writing a post about the things I love right here, right now. Hopefully I will do it most Mondays but you just never know now, do you?
Above and below are two pictures I took last week. We were at the Botanical Gardens when a storm came in fairly fast. Most people ran to their cars. Instead of leaving, we headed to a gazebo and proceeded to have a simply magical experience. We watched the rain while we snuggled. Logan napped in my arms while Hannah shared a bit of what goes on in her beautiful, amazing mind. It was as close to perfection as I could imagine. It made me realize even more how much I love my life.
So here are just a few of the things I am loving right now.
1. Snuggling and talking quietly in the rain.
2. Hooping under the bright blue sky next to a gently babbling creek while listening to the laughter of the rest of my family playing.
4. Pink, in general but especially on my daughter. Couple that with sparkles and it is a joy fest.
5. Watching my husband be an amazing father not only in the fun times but even more so in the times of stress and turmoil.
7. Metta meditation
8. Doggies that are simply positive I want kisses during down dog (or up dog or cobra or well, anytime really)
9. Flowing hippie skirts that makes me feel like I am dancing even when I am just walking.
10. The love of running
11. Best friends
12. The ability to see the divine in all that surrounds me.
It is not a complete list. I hope to never have the time or ability to write a complete list. I send out warmth and love to you today. I hope your Monday and your week will be filled with love, kindness, and joy.
