for reading the story about Jesus calming the storm this morning. even the wind & waves obey Him and it's timeless.
for the hard hard lives of three and four year olds (haha). their drama and the things they think are the hugest deal are so entertaining and constantly make me laugh (or want to pull my hair out). the lil nugs.
for serving little nuggets by caring for all of their needs and teaching them. my job is a built-in lesson on serving and loving and i'm not always good at it but i'm thankful for what it teaches me.
for vic & sarah spending their lunch break helping me brainstorm ideas.
for the soup aunt wendy gave me yesterday to be my lunch today. and one of alyssa's apples again, because lex needs to go grocery shopping!
for how excited one of my little friends got today when i sang "who took the cookie from the cookie jar" and the weirdo voices he was doing while singing different parts. gave me & my coworker kelsey a good chuckle! ha.
for how that little buddy calls me "lexi."
for the sweater i thrifted for 3 doll hairs!!!
for my high school girls! i adore them so much. they're so special to me. tonight one of them had me read over her essay and another one wanted to introduce me to her boyfriend and i just feel so honored and so crazy grateful to be a part of their lives. i'm really proud of them all. they're already the most beautiful humans, i can't wait to see who they become.
for this spot at my kitchen table and the rhythm of writing and reflecting here at the end of the day.
all is gift.
