Daybook

Outside my window…it is dark and peaceful. 

I am thankful…for rare moments of peace and quiet.  This is one.

I am thinking…about the ties that bind siblings.  I watch Joseph and William play together, knowing Andrew will soon join them.  I watch them argue.  I watch them as they learn to share.  I watch them struggle.  I watch them as they love one another, get angry with one another, help one another, grow with one another.  And I pray.  I pray that despite their differences, they will grow to be true friends.    

From the learning rooms…we’re in the midst of C week on the Alphabet Path. 

In the kitchen…homemade pizza.  Again.  I know that’s what we had last time I did a Daybook.  We really do eat other things.  It’s just so nice to have traditions and it seems that homemade pizza once a week is a tradition of ours.

I am wearing…comfy pajamas.

I am reflecting…on 127 Hours, the movie Daxson and I recently watched.  I am in awe of the human spirit and the will to live. 

I am hearing…the rhythmic thump of the motor on the baby swing.  Andrew is finally sleeping peacefully.

Around the house…the usual.  Laundry, cooking, cleaning.  No big projects right now.  Maybe one day soon I can start to organize photos.   

One of my favorite things…schooling alongside my children.  I’m learning things now that I missed out on the first time around.  (I had no idea there was a country called Belarus until recently…thank you to Joseph…he’s my little geography teacher.)

Here is picture for thought I am sharing…stopping to pray a Hail Mary in the prayer garden at our parish.

  1. That is a precious picture. I am glad that you are taking the time to write your thoughts down. I think that is really a great thing that you girls can do now with computers.
    Love,
