Moments of Grace

Feeling really happy these days.... It's not a total excitement type of happy
but feeling so lucky to have these moments of grace fill each day. I
notice when I am ready to sleep each night and I take a moment to look back at
my day how content I feel. I think it's the first time in a really long
time I feel like I can actually say to myself I am where I am supposed to
be. It feels really great.
Feeling lucky for Lily. For her
love of family and home. Our basement is now painted and decorated so
pretty thanks to her. For the moments we can share together in a room not
speaking and feeling completely close. For my sweet kitties. How I am
enjoying their kitty spirits. Early loves to sit next to my computer while
I work. I love her orange body watching me work. It makes working so
much easier! And Early, who knew being woken up each night at three to
give you love would make me so happy. For hearing my nieces still speak
about me even though I am not able to speak to them. For family and
friends who made missing my first Thanksgiving away from Phoenix not so
hard. The calls and emails helped so much. I felt really loved
and I needed it.
I know that on Thursday we all took a moment to say what we
were thankful for, but for me it's these special moments that happen each day I
most thankful for. Posted by Picasa

Studio Friday... very late....

This weeks topic for Studio Friday was "All Things Round." I remember writing to Tine earlier this week saying how I've really missed being part of Studio Friday. I've been working two jobs so finding some free time isn't always easy. I was thinking how much I wanted to be a part of this weeks topic but as I told Tine I just don't have anything round in my studio. Today while reading some of the other wonderful entries it hit me. Sitting right in front of me is in fact two round coffee cups full of round coins! So here is my entery... I know it's late but it feels great to be a part of this again.

How Sweet Is This!

This is Birdie sleeping with Ben in the kitchen. I love how Ben hates it but has decided to be nice and be a daddy to the new babies. How can you not love it! Posted by Picasa

New Addition

Meet Birdie and Early....

These two sweet babies are the new addition to our family. Birdie is the boy. He's the dark one. Early is our sweet new little orange girl. We got them three weeks ago and our house hasn't been the same since. I can't get over how sweet they are. So much curiousosity and life inside these two little ones. I am also so surprised at how much love they have. Early makes sure to clean Birdie each night before they sleep, it's quite sweet. Birdie makes sure to wake me each night at three in the morning for some special love. It's our special time together and he never misses a night. Our two Labs and our other cat seem to be doing really well with the new babies. I've even caught Early cleaning the dogs faces a few times!
