Whole Living Gal


It couldn’t be more gorgeous outside today. Just as September is coming to a close, we get a super-sunny, high-of-84 day. I love the season changes when you never know what you’ll get – cold and rainy and thoughts of frost or full-blown reminders of summer.

My six-month-old is sitting next to me in the sunshine and she is scooching forward – almost crawling! I literally want to bottle up this time with my little ones and save it. I am trying to sit and be and soak up the days as they come – sunshine, clouds, rain, frost, crawling, walking, cuddling.

A few nights ago, I was putting my 22-month-old to bed and she had her head on my should as I  recapped her day. I went through all the activities of her day and when I got to the end, I said, “You had such a good day. It was a really nice day.” She was quiet for a moment and then she said, “Beautiful.”

    Smart, that little one…I like that idea of recapping the day and pointing out the positives. I’m going to try that with our kids when I put them to bed. It’s a good beginning to prayer time and thinking through what we can thank God for.

    What a wonderful living lesson to share with one so little. And a reminder for me, the elder who sometimes forgets the recapping part with gratitude and starts planning the next day of ‘gotta-dos’ in a frenzy. Hugs and kisses

    I love the ‘scooching’ part. Reminds me of Z’s video of her being told to ‘scooch’ and down the slide she came! Now you’ll have 2 scooching all over the place!
