set limits or boundaries, and say "no" when we need to.
We are actually setting an example for others of
love and self-respect.

These lyrics are from a new CD some friends of mine just released. All of the songs are just as wonderful. Here's a link if you'd like to check it out: http://colleencrosson.com/

|He sees miracles in the dawn's early light|
|He sees miracles in the first star at night|
|He sees miracles in the simplest of things|
|In a butterfly's flight, in a hummingbird's wings|
|In the magic that each moment brings|
|She finds miracles in the thunder and rain|
|She finds miracles in a fire fly's flame|
|She makes miracles with a hug and a kiss|
|In just holding hands through moments like this|
|She finds miracles in such bliss|
|When did I go so far astray,|
|That I stopped running wild, that I stopped playing free?|
|Searching in hopes I'd find my way|
|I found a child of three, with so much to teach me|
|'Cause he sees miracles in the marching of ants|
|And she sees miracles in a honey bee's dance|
|They see miracles in the simplest of things|
|In the first winter snow, in the blossom of spring|
|In the magic that each moment brings|
|She finds miracles on the string of a kite|
|And he finds miracles in a moment's delight|
|They find miracles on a warm summer breeze|
|In a puddle of rain, in the climbing of trees|
|They find miracles in moments like these|
|Where in the world did I lose track,|
|When the wonders of life, lost their wonder to me?|
|It's time that I found my way back|
|There's a child in my heart…'n'|
|She yells…"allee allee in come free"|
|Then we'll find miracles, whether young or old|
|We'll find miracles in each story told|
|We'll see miracles when we laugh or we cry|
|Through all of our lives, 'til the day that we die|
|There's a miracle, even in goodbye|
|For we're miracles…You and I|

when the risk to remain tight in the bud
was more painful
than the risk it took to blossom.

He was looking for Pooh!
My son is full of these jokes today. Who was it that thought teaching him to read was a good thing? :) You wouldn't believe how many times my daughter has fallen for
She gets sooo mad at him that I have to admit, it is pretty funny.
Watching my children grow and develop their own sense of humor is so fun....they're each so different and so creative. Is there anything better in life?

If you want to be happy, be.
For Today, Thursday, 7/2/09...
Outside my window...everything is a luscious green, thanks to all the amazing rain we've had recently.
I am thinking...about being where I am and being more mindful.
I am thankful for...my home and family.
From the kitchen...I hope to create something delicious for dinner.
I am reading...Living Dead in Dallas and Peace is Every Step
I am hoping...to get a lot done today and enjoy every second.
I am creating...a peaceful home.
I am hearing...Dora the Explorer on the TV.
Around the house...things are good....I can't wait to have the bathrooms finished.
One of my favorite things...is cuddling.
A few plans for the rest of the week...we're going on a playdate at the park tomorrow and planning firework fun for Saturday.

The Avon Walk was great. The people, the energy, the money raised, the scenery....everything was awe-inspiring. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to participate again. Over 1400 people walked last weekend and raised $2.6 MILLION!! It's impossible to truly convey the experience. If you ever have the chance, check it out! :)
Yesterday another wonderful thing happened. My second niece was born! Ainsley Paige weighed in at 8lbs, 6 oz; 20 inches. She has a little dimple in her chin and is as precious as can be. I can't wait to hold her and love on her.
I wonder what amazing things are in store for today.
