I was a good mom this weekend.
I don't often tell myself that.
I often notice the times when I lack.
I was abundant this weekend.
I was like Joe is always...brimming and present.
I laughed a lot.
My skin felt the warmer wind.
My children were outside and dirty for days.
And my heart is lighter
And my heart is lighter
And my heart is lighter

Fantastic photos Amy. Wonderful to read that your heart feels the goodness. xo

I know that feeling. And the feeling of not being great.

I try to rest in the middle, secure that I'm good enough, that our family is what it is. Secure that my little wild creepers of children will grow in the directions they need to grow.

I like it when they get dirty. They like it when they get dirty.

There are good sides to every shadow.

that is a very nice thing to be able to say. i know that fleeting feeling.

right on for more time outside- that's my personal weakness as a parent (that i'm aware of!)
