Hello friends, care to join me over a cozy cup of cocoa?
If you were here I would tell you that this is one of my favourite colour palettes.. limey greens, turquoise, and chocolaty browns.
I'd also tell you how today marks my 37th week - this belly is full-term now (which means I better get my delivery bag packed for the hospital)... wowsers.
We had recently discovered that our lil' guy has a heart arrhythmia (erratic heart-rate)... and had to get it assessed to see how benign or serious the issue was. We were booked for Sick Kids in Toronto, but managed to see a local specialist first. He assured us that this seemed fairly harmless and was common enough to likely 'right itself'. [Phew]... these past couple weeks had been a battle to not stress/worry since that never changes anything for good any way.
I'd tell you how recently I've been nesting and resting.
Cleaning around the house, baking muffins with our gal Azriel, trying to be still, reading, reflecting...
Lately we're developing a good new rhythm in our home - now that Ben finally has a more consistent work schedule... our days seem more structured (my brain needs order!).
I'd say how rewarding it is to push forward in our faith as a couple/family... after a season of wading in a milieu of mediocrity.. re-capturing the wonder of Who God is always brings a sense of 'coming up for air' when you forgot you were even suffocating.
I'd share how cats.cocoa. and cable knit sweaters are especially delightful right now.
How exciting it is to be featured today on Prudent Baby (one of the top 'Mom' websites for my harem pants d.i.y)! Who knew that post would continue to be the most googled subject on a daily basis here!
In other random news, I would say how there was a dead hawk in our backyard... but it was so untouched... asleep looking. I felt struck by how haunting and beautiful it was.
By now I've reached the bottom of my cocoa, the marshmallow is gooey and ready to be slurped back in one final delicious swig.
Wiping my mouth, I'd look up and say... "but how about you? How's your world lately?"
Thanks for hearing this mama's heart today,
