"God showed me something small, no bigger than a hazelnut, lying in the palm of my hand… and it was round as a ball. I looked at it with the eye of my understanding and thought: 'What can this be?' And it was generally answered thus: 'It is all that was made.' It was so small I thought it might disappear, but I was answered... everything has being through the love of God." --Julian of Norwich

Thankful Thought(s) #6


Today I'm thankful for:

A baby who slept through the night!!

Mornings... haven't seen those in a while.  But Lucy is finally on a schedule where she sleeps at night and wakes between 7 & 8am. Mornings are lovely all over again.

A poppy seed bagel, toasted, with cream cheese and a small pot of peppermint tea (one spoonful of sugar).  All I was missing was the greek-looking blue paper cup and I could have been in my NYC classroom a few minutes before the morning bell.

Two days of autumn sunshine streaming in my kitchen windows and one walk in a chill autumn rain.

 Only 5 more sleeps till I get to see my family in the good ol' US of A.


  1. I love the background (the books) on your blog :)

  2. Thanks, Jen. I recently changed it, and I was a little sad to lose my old format... but I do like this one. :)
