finding eggs!

My sweet five year old boy brings so much joy to my life. Here he is in his favorite scarecrow costume, at sunrise, finding an egg. I don't know what is more exciting, the egg or the delight on his face.

more of this

The new year has brought some clarity to me. A wise friend of mine reminded me that clarity was something I was looking for as she gave me a handmade gift with "CLARITY" sweetly written on it for Christmas this year. She has a way of tuning in to the truth and I am so grateful for her friendship. Yes, clarity. Since then I have been pondering what that looks like for me.  I realize I will never be completely clear about everything in this shades of grey world, but I can clear up the signal that runs from my gut to my brain. I can tune in to the station a bit more and just do what feels right. And right now, it feels so right to spend more time outside. Even in the middle of winter, the beach can be a great place to be clear. It can be as simple as that. It also feels right to focus on my own children and family more and allow others to create their own lives, fight their own battles, and win or lose on their own. I am feeling the need to be more available to my husband and children's needs and less mentally preoccupied with others. Making choices to be in community with people that lift me up and strengthen me. Yes, clarity is feeling pretty good right now.
