The days after...

I find myself sitting at our kitchen table today with the sliding door open, letting in the fresh air as it mixes with the warm rays from the sun, a quietness is felt in the cool winter warmth. There are no crickets talking and no birds singing...  the earth is still right now except for the occasional flock of geese flying above.   

The days after Christmas find us recovering from a nasty virus.  I have one little man that is beginning to show signs of life again and a little girl who is just in the midst of it...  
Even in this there is so much to be thankful for...   thankful for our Christmas break and the slower days; thankful for warm chicken soup; thankful for the crisp, warm days that are calling us outside to enjoy the fresh air even in the midst of sickness; thankful for the beauty of His creation...


  1. Your writing amazes me! You really should write a book you know.
    So glad Mr.B is acting more like himself.

  2. Hi Carrie,

    Thanks for the note! I'm sorry to hear that your family is sick. :(

    Your children are so blessed to have a mommy who can find (and show them) the joy in all circumstances. :)

    I'll be praying for you all.
