for today



FOR TODAY
Outside my window...I am looking at my backyard for what might be the last time.
I am thinking...of a dear friend who is going through a very difficult time.
I am thankful for...my husband, my son, my health, the "right here, right now" of it all.
From the kitchen...my kitchen is packed up in boxes. We are moving right now....no cooking for me which is hard because I love to cook and bake.
I am wearing...a flouncy tank top with jean capris.
I am creating...I have some sewing projects that are on hold until we are settled into our new home. I will be using my sketchbook while we are on vacation.
I am going...to Ottawa on Saturday. Montreal on Sunday. B.C. the following Sunday and Whitehorse the Sunday after that! Good grief!
I am reading...up on my sewing techniques.
I am hoping...that my friend finds the strength she needs to carry on
I am hearing...the sound of my sweet babe breath in and out as he sleeps.
Around the house...is chaos. Boxes everywhere!
One of my favorite things...I have a few....chocolate, cuddles with my babe, a hug from my man, a fancy coffee from Starbucks, a phone call with my mom, creating something that works out nicely, visits with friends, pasta casserole...
A few plans for the rest of the week: packing, saying goodbye to our friends here in Hamilton, saying goodbye to our home, traveling to Ottawa...lot's is going on.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

  2. It's good to be still for a little while amidst the turmoil, to reflect on your blessings.
    There will be lots of wonderful memories of this hectic time to sustain you as you move into your new house, even though it is tinged with sadness. It won't be long 'till you make a cosy home for yourself and your loved ones.

    Your friend has been in my thoughts.
