nothing is worth more than this day

this morning began with a greeting of a tiny little dreamland giggle sweetly flowing through the air from behind a curtain of red hair. the moment was graced with God's perfection and i drank it up.

this precious trinket was the top off that today was going to be a good one.

i feel like things get more complicated by the minute around here, but that doesn't mean i am weak, nor am i at a place in my life where i will be defeated by the ugly pieces.

i'm ready for this year. twenty twelve. so ready. it is going to be big. it is going to be wonderful. it is going to be scary. it is going to be an adventure. it is going to be full of laughter.

i feel stronger than ever with the gift of each day. seriously? each day is huge. it is what we make it. i find myself asking the tough questions lately, except the opposite of what usually escapes from a human's lips. "why am i so lucky to have another day?

utah mother nature is horribly confused lately, bless her sweet heart. we are having record breaking warm weather here in the beehive state. i have to confess, i do find myself dreaming of snow angels with a little redheaded pixie bundled up in a lavender snowsuit, but good gracious, we are soaking up this january spring for all it is worth. it is funny how it flows into a new mentality i am throwing myself into...embrace it. 


  1. we are really enjoying the warm here in nebraska, as well. early evening walks and bike rides and laughter.
