    When was the last time someone behind you at

    the grocery store gave you the extra $ (that you thought you had) to pay the cashier? People that do things like that amaze me. <3

    Had an appointment early this morning

    and it's a 45 minute drive. It took me an hour and a half...why you ask? Well, Pulled over to make room for four John Deere tractors, Stopped three times to move turtles out of the road, Pulled onto a dirt road to watch the ten deer grazing in a field of buttercups, Stopped to...

    He called me outside asking me to close the

    door behind me. I have something to show you, he says. He takes my hand and walks me around the back porch. We sit and look up. The stars are so vibrant tonight. We share a glass of wine and talk about how beautiful the stars are. It was so dark and the only thing I could hear...

    We come here time and again (yes,

    incarnation) to learn, but really to remember. We each choose our parents, our best teachers to give us experiences that grow and evolve us. We choose painful experiences because this is how we remember compassion. And by the way, our patents choose us, too. It's called a soul...

    I miss tracing the lines of your tattoos.

    I miss the feeling of your shoulder blades the way your muscles flexed when we made love. I miss your laugh, that loll on your face when I'd say " baby I'd live in a card board box if it was with you". I miss you. R.I.P my heart.

    Every morning when my husband kisses me goodbye

    before he leaves for work, we tell each other, "Be safe and be happy. I love you and I like you." It makes me smile every time. All the simple wishes we have for one another wrapped up in a tiny phrase.

    Having my 4 yr old tell me I made a delicious

    dinner. Makes my day. Even when it's a simple grilled cheese sandwich. He puts life in perspective for me and helps me see beauty and joy in everyday, simple things.

    Call me a nerd or whatever

    but I absolutely love reading. I never want to throw books away after I've read them. I meet a lot of people my age that are actually shocked to find that I buy books to actually read & not study with. Whenever I'm on the bus or out somewhere people look at me like I'm alien or...

    Like quiet. And sunsets.

    Really big trees & the outdoors overall (as long as it's not raining). Seeing parents with their toddlers. Stuff like that keeps me smiling.

    I live simply. I wear the same old pair of

    Chuck Taylors until they disintegrate. My wheels are a 1982 Wagoneer that I can fit the most important things in the world - my kids and a few things of my late father. My idea of a vacation is somewhere where I can walk all day, looking at architectures or nature. Or both...

    Spending the weekend with 2 little ones really

    is good for the soul. They are hysterical, loving, naughty, bundles of joy. Pure joy! They make you appreciate kisses, hugs, sitting in the grass, spinning in circles to fall down, looking in awe at a grasshopper, and reading a book on zoo animals. They have recharged my...
