little joys & remembering

sookie's laughter makes me feel like i can do anything; it has a sing song vibe to its cadence, and it fills me to the very brim with effervescent courage.

a vast majority of the most perfect moments this summer have revolved around her giggles; they fuel me when i think i can't go any further.

my grandma kay would have been 73 today.

i miss her from the depths of my bones. she was a superhero genre of a woman; those rare kind. i can't believe it has been eight years...

after yesterday's debacle of finding out Sookie no longer has insurance...(SURPRISE!) i made extra effort to soak in the little good things today...because they are what our days melt down to; when the sun sets you remember the juicy aspects; not whether or not the laundry was completely put away.

this morning was zebra pajamas, burnt but still delicious blueberry pancakes, lucinda williams, and scrapbook supplies strewn from one end of the hall to the other, in our quest to make the perfect handmade thank you cards.

this afternoon was heat, sook having her bangs trimmed and feeding chickens with cousin ronna...and building forts out of the couch cushions and the dining room table. (i confess, this was my idea. ;)

i'm thinking i should have had the back of her hair trimmed as well...because now she is rocking a carol brady type of do. haha!

oh well.
c'est la vie. ;)
