Hello there! I hope this short post finds you well!
I’ve been thinking about some of the crucial things we need in order to live well that we must give and take in small increments.
Things like sleep, good food, encouragement, fun activities, journal entries, good health and even inspiration. Things like these can’t be consumed once or stocked away or served in a one-time scoop.
They are daily, gathered little by little into the storehouse of our bodies and our memories.
You may have a great day at the beach with your children, but then as that fun becomes a memory and you all change and grow, you will have need of other trips and outings together.
You may prepare good food and give or receive encouragement today, but tomorrow will have need of new energy, nutrients, kind words and support of many kinds.
It’s the metered days, the sun crossing the sky, night falling and the moon rising. It’s a bigger shoe size this month and baby teeth falling out and a voice warbling as it finds it’s new, lower place.
What do you need to ask for today? What can you give today? Ask it and give it and then rest and look for newness in all things tomorrow.
Much love to you, you’re wonderful! Please don’t forget to speak kindly to yourself and then to your little ones.
