Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort
of feeling safe with a person, having neither
to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but
pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff
and grain together, certain that a faithful
hand will take and sift them, keep what is
worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness
blow the rest away.
Mother's Day weekend was lively.
Emerson ran a 1/2 mile in the
American Kid's Run earning a
medal that she is very proud
She got to wear her shirt with the
Lady Cordelia Design. and declared
it her 'most favorite shirt ever' !
There was much chick holding. The
chicks got their wings trimmed since
Dani has now learned to fly, much to
the delight of a certain five year old.
We ate lots and lots of honeysuckles
and lots and lots of homemade ice cream.
The storm clouds blew in with much noise,
but quickly blew out without any rain falling,
All but one of my babies made it by with warm
hugs and laughter and joy.
It's been a good weekend.
This space will be quiet for a few days as I
prepare for the last week of school. I need
to write compliance forms and work up a
plan for the next year of lessons. I hope
you enjoy a gentle week filled with only
things that bring a smile.
