for the morning cup of tea. or coffee. whichever it is, for the ritual of making, of holding, of sipping. for the quiet beginning.
for the succulents by the window. for their quirky beauty. for their being hardy enough to survive my non-green thumb.
for the nasturtiums that are still blooming. for the reminder to honor individual rhythms.
for the flannel sheets on all the beds. for their warmth. for the luxury to change with the seasons.
for my husband, my son, my daughter – my three. for the ways they teach me. for love.
for all the years of being home with the kids. for homeschooling (which isn’t for everyone, but is for us). for the freedom to make such choices.
for our pup who somehow gets cuter every day. for her silly antics. for her unconditional love.
for the birch trees out back. for their strength, for their suppleness. for the way they touch my heart.
for language. for expression.
for this life. for the opportunity to grow, for the space to rest. for love, for love, for love.
for all of these. and so much more.
