in the midst of all this welcome change

our cousin Jack (and his mama and papa) came to visit us from down south.  we’ve gone to the pumpkin patch and storytime and the thrift store.  we’ve made and eaten lots and lots of good food.

but my favorite moment so far came this afternoon when my little brother, Paul, walked in the room.  he was carrying his son, trying to get him to sleep.  i had my son in arms, willing his nap to continue.  we looked at each other and recognized ourselves.






  1. nothing makes a mama happier than hearing about the love between sister and brother and cousins and in-laws and all of us together making a family
