you're reading...

for my children

For the love notes you write me every day, leaving them folded up awkwardly on the table or stuck to the wall

For the sweet sound of your belly laugh

For your quick wit

For your rose-smelling ways

For your generous spirit

For your intensity

For your awareness of things that extend beyond your world

For the depth of your sensitivity

For your boundless curiosity

For your amazing creativity

For your adorable smile

For your with-all-your-might hugs

For your clever dance moves

For your wisdom

For your endless love, no matter how much I screw up

I am forever grateful, and I will forever love you.

A worshipper of the natural world. A seeker of knowledge. A lover of the arts. An introvert. A silver-lining kind of girl.
