The Sweetest Privilege

43/100 complete

When somebody in your circles loses a child it catches you off guard. My heart breaks with what I cannot really even let myself start to imagine.

Today I am thinking of a beautiful little blonde-haired girl and praying for a family in anguish.

Today I am remembering that parenting is, of all things, the sweetest privilege we are given.

Tonight I am grateful for 2 little boys healthy and lovely and for a 4-year-old who stopped me on the way out of his room with a whispered ‘Mummy I love you’.

Master 4 and I planted seeds this afternoon. We will wait and look forward to new life coming from small seeds buried.

Our Handy Work

And with Master 1 we sat together and listened to the sound of buttons dropping into a glass jar.


Some things are worth doing slowly. Some things are for savouring.
