Three Beautiful Things, March 24

1. Orange gerbera daisies on my desk and a bright orange balloon tied to my chair by a co-worker. Leftover from a festive event yesterday, they keep the cheer going on a mainly overcast day.

2. The sky is blue, it’s gray, it’s white puffy clouds, it’s sunny, it’s rapidly darkening—reflective of my day, and almost following along with my moods.

3. Loving John Legend’s version of Nina Simone’s classic “I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel To Be Free,” though I suppose you could read a lot into me listening to it on pretty much a daily basis as I’m driving to work. :-)

Just taking a few minutes on a Sunday afternoon to check back in with the blog world, which I've been neglecting. Your girls are looking so big and lovely! Great to see you're still writing. I've been feeling a little apocalyptic lately, too, but like you try to focus on the beautiful things, as well. Take care!

Hi, E! Thanks for commenting -- it feels like getting a phone call from an old friend. Where does the time go?? I remember reading your blog when you were pregnant with Roo and now she is 3!!

Hope all is well with you and yours! I'm glad to see you are still writing too despite the difficulty of trying to Do It All (believe me, I can relate).

Great to check in on you, too! Sorry to hear your grandma is passing on. I know how hard that is. I lost my grandpa and then my grandma about five years ago, and they were like second parents to me. May she have as much peace and comfort as possible in the days she has left. Take care.
