“Here is a beautiful pinecone, even though it’s a little squished, and that big big dandelion wants to come home with me…”
While I stood there by our built-in cabinet, I sensed something tickly at my forehead, and pulled back to look…
I check on the children, sleeping in their beds. I pull back my covers and remember something I forgot downstairs, so I go do that, too.
Some days my life flows with a serendipity that astonishes me. Other days, not so much. Where will I find a box of the right size?
Someone had spread a glorious thick carpet under my bed, so that my toes sank deep into its silvery luxury.
One of my sisters-in-law and I could talk planners all day long. We exchange WhatsApp messages comparing their perks.
