Multitude Monday 7/19/10

Sam and Grandpa Lee, sharing birthday celebrations for 13 plus years.

pink cosmos flowers, shuddering in a breeze.

rocking babies in the church nursery.

Josiah and I, having meaningful, adult-like conversations, alone together in the car.

the power of Less.

air conditioning.

chopped veggie salads.

telling stories at Vacation Bible School, to wide-eyed children.

the boys delight in a new book.

John, making buttered popcorn for us. He didn’t want it much, but he knew I did.

sunshine through the skylight, flooding the kitchen island with Summer.

thrift store excursions.

all of us, singing The Cheeseburger Song. loudly.

necklaces. skirts. heels. and enjoying being a girl in a house full of boys. (but only occasionally! tees and jeans always prevail)

etsy exploring.

watching the boys splash in a pool.

when Caleb mimics me so perfectly, and sets everyone in the house to laughing.

hot showers.

garlic mashed potatoes.

that neighbor in town, who has a horse tied in their front yard like Pippi Longstocking.

cardboard stories.  the gospel’s power to change us, illustrated.

About sparrowjourney

Christian homeschooling mom to three boys, married to my best friend, John, for over 20 years. I love gardening without gloves, learning history with my kids, cooking with lots of butter, serving others, great books, rich coffee, studying the Bible, camping outdoors, scrapbooking, vintage home decor, the smell of rain and cut grass, authentic people, poetry, laughing until your sides hurt, and babies. oh and black licorice is pretty awesome.
