{Today's Letters}

Wednesday, November 28, 2018


Dear Timothy James, since cutting down our Christmas tree we’ve A) almost watched it fall onto Stovezilla twice B) discussed lassoing it to our ceiling with kite string C) looked for Aunt Bethany’s cat hidden within its branches or D) all of the above. Dear Bravey Train, yesterday you asked if the sun goes into the ground when it sets and lights up people in cemeteries like a flashlight. Three points for channeling my inner Christopher Columbus for our discussion, two points for always making my day with your questions. Dear Dr. Pruitt, watching you receive your daisy award was sweeter than winning the Jelly of the Month club. So encouraged and challenged by the way you love, care for, and serve your patients in L&D! Dear Mr. Loerke, there are many things I love about the holiday season, you turning on our leg lamp each night is one of them. Ps- there might be a bowling ball under the tree this year with your name on it. Just sayin.
Happy Tuesday, y’all!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING BUTTERBALLS!
We spent the day stuffing our bellies with extra sweet potato casserole and elk roast.
My favorite memory (besides taking a mid-day nap on the couch) was playing
backyard soccer with Squanto and William Bradford. 
These three have been such a gift in my life!
Rowan's birth gave me the courage I needed to become a mom.
Bravey's birth showed me I could do (really) hard things.
And Maggie's birth inspired me to go to nursing school at 38 and become a midwife.
 Love your little people well today and tell them often what world changers they are.
Gobble, gobble! 

{Gratitude Lately}

Monday, November 05, 2018


Lately I've been thankful for warm afternoons and front yard chickens.


For slow mornings reading by Stovezilla.


For backyard pumpkins ready for picking.


For a new season of change.


And for chances to play hard after working hard.
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
Happy Monday, y'all.
What have you been thankful for lately?
