I have to drag myself....drag myself out of bed these days... Ella still nurses at 3am...and that last hour and a half before I have to get up deliciously warm and deep and restful...draggggggggingg...

But something happens as I make my way into the dark kitchen and turn on my keurig-
Something happens as I soak in the silence and my heart lifts in praise.
He answers.
And speaks love and grace and mercy- the kind of grace that is more than enough-
He speaks and boosts my dreams and steadies my heart again and again and again.
Coffees ready... But I'm going soak this beautiful silence in a bit more.. Good morning Lord

Good theology

we have a crack in our kitchen floor.
Jack - in his infinite 2 yr old wisdom has declared this Jesus' home.
And routinely lays on the floor ( mostly dirty) and rubbs the place that -and I quote -
" me own precious Jesus lives"

So I in my own wisdom broke out the Easter books and read about heaven!

And now Jack calls the crack...
"Me own heaven."

 jack ran in to the kitchen exclaiming

 "uh oh mama uh oh"

holding up both hands he said

" my hands are empty.. No sausage in them? Uhhohh both hands need sausage for me mama!?!"

he got his snack cup of sausage and was very very pleased...

" this sausage gooooood for me muscles mama....."

Playing church

We stayed home from church Sunday.. dealing with ...overtiredhopewedon'tgetsickitis...

dan told the babies to get ready cause in a few minutes we were going to have church at home...

when we walked into the living room this is what we saw:

we sang "o happy day " and " no sweeter name" ( many many times...) then we sat together and read scriptures.. ava interrupted dan to tell him to stand up just like pop does... dan said no its ok to sit down in home church and ava slowly shook her head muttering.. ill have to ask pop about that...

we all took turns praying and jack blessed his ( future) lunch about 15 times. ella learned to say amen and my heart overflowed.

Warm in my arms,
Your sweet cheek so round and rosy.
Dark lashes and rosebud lips.
You fit just perfect in my arms.
Crossed ankles. Exploring little fingers.
Little nose bobbing up and down.
Your babyblues- so sleepy. So wise. Looking up at me. Sharing secrets.
The sweetest smell.
Want to breathe you in.
One of these days it will be the last time. Our last time.
My last time.
But I'll remember.
And we will still share secrets my sweet firefly. You'll see.

- jack

Me too mama in me mind. So much (a)mazin (s)tuff me thinkin bout I might fall on the floor!
Are you thinkin what me thinkin mama?
Don't fall down!
- Ava


Ava has been my sweetest helper today. I think she can tell that I'm not feeling good ( Lyme) and has been quick to hug and snuggle me.. Even offering to give me a kiss on the lips!!!!!!!!! ( something she never ever does - cant handle the feeling)

Tonight after dinner she carried in the dishes.. And when I suggested she go play.. She said-
" give me a sec mama.. Me gotta wipe this floor!" And she did!


Wearing this today... And my rough and tumble little boy suddenly stopped and hugged leg saying
" your beautiful like Cinderella mama"

Woke up early today.
Made coffee in the dark.

Heard the sandman get up.
Felt his strong arms giving me a morning hug.

Ava up. Ella up. Silly snuggles and sister whispers. (Already)
Jack up. No more snuggles! Tumbles and tumbles.

Eggs- more coffee.
Good day prayers. Goodbye kisses.

Hello world.
