there are so many nights that, after i get home from work, go kinda like this: i blink, put two dishes in the dishwasher and, oh, it's 10:30.
well last night was the rarity. we squeezed in a whole bunch of play and love.
checked on the garden with my little gardener. He's decided he wants to 'grow up into' a gardener. does it get better?
we walked around the block together, landed in our own overgrown patch and tossed the ball from end to end.
some nights it can be a challenge for me to switch gears and engage with these little hearts-- getting into the dirt with them, after removing my heels and favorite green beads.
why do i resist so often the gifts of joy God longs to give me if i would just choose to open my eyes and receive? oh the rewards and blessings that wait for me.
although her face doesn't reflect it here, we really did have a joy-filled time. really.
we closed the evening with a bath
and impromptu time with dear friends and neighbors. the kids cuddled in for the night and i sewed and sewed. i hope to put more up soon of stuff i'm working on and may get to a little tutorial one of these days.
