i am feeling quite tender these days. rob has been away… taking care of his parents as his father slips away to another realm while in the care of family and hospice at home. while he has been saturated in the intensity of that world, i have been single parenting and working hard at staying present and patient and compassionate. sometimes being present is the hardest and most important work of all.

i really just wanted to check in and say hello, and thought i would share some sweet little images i took in my garden last night…






thanks for stopping by!

    this really hits home for me as I’ve been distant myself lately. I’m sorry for your husbands family. thank you for posting this.
    your garden photos are beautiful.
