just thinking

as i looked around my house, looking for the beauty amidst 
and in spite of the clutter
i started thinking about how one day i really will miss these chaotic, sometimes 
boring days.

i sat upon the kitchen counter in reflection and decided to take some snapshots 
of the everyday things i see.
nursing an annoying cold with some herbal tea with honey.
doing healthy things for my body and my kids gives me a
homeopathic high. i love being a kind of hippie.

this table, where we do school, could really irritate me with its clutter.
instead i remind myself to look at it as this amazing place where my kids
learn, create and discover.
that is a thing of beauty.

my daughter's silly sense of style makes me shake my head quite often.
she brings a smile to my face and i choose to let her be
(as long as we aren't planning on going out in public that day)!

God created oranges to be in season during a gloomy time of year.
this little colorful gift is a blessing.
it's packed full of vitamin c during a season when we need it most.
God is amazing.
