i fully intend to:-make a blog post every day. rather, i will attempt posting daily, and if life does not let me, c’est la vie! -apply violette’s new motto, borrowed from charlotte in charlotte’s web: “never hurry, never worry”. vi is reminding me of this daily- tonite i forgot to heat up the beans to go with our dinner, and she says, mostly tender and slightly mischievously: “mama, it’s okay. never hurry and never worry!” -take better care of myself. walk with my sister, drink water, eat nourishing foods on a regular basis (my daily meals typically involve a small breakfast of some variation on fruit/granola bar/yogurt and then waiting until dinner, where i tend to overeat out of hunger from realizing i haven’t eaten since breakfast!) -pray.
-continue the process of learning to hold my tongue and my temper. create in me a clean heart, O God. -practice living respectfully towards all living things, & remember everybody needs a little grace sometimes. (note to self: grace is not a one time act- if one needs grace after extending it- what can seem like a thousand times – go for the 1,001.) -“put on love like a t-shirt” every morning, every time i feel grouchy. all day, every day. -continue the daily notes and log kept during school- there is such beauty in the “mundane” details. -take photos, edit photos. and not be discouraged by the naysayers & the cruel. -celebrate autumn, celebrate change, celebrate warmth, celebrate family. simply celebrate! -appreciate and rejoice in any rainfall- oh to have a true blue thunderstorm! rain, i miss you.
