Miracle. All of it.


  • Photographer Megan Loeks made this photograph during bath time that was joined by a curious feline onlooker. (National Geographic, August 2, 2019)
  • Post Inspired by: Sometimes, in the afternoons, I would get into bed with her for a nap, and she would lie beside me drinking her bottle, her eyes fixed in fascination on my body. A preliminary wave of sleep would roll warmly over us. I could feel us falling together through the bright constellations of our thoughts. Even as I crossed the line into sleep I felt her cross it too; I felt her go to sleep just as when I was a child I used to feel snow falling outside my window. Later I would open my eyes to find her sleeping head on my stomach, her body curled as if in homecoming around my side, and I would lie very still, knowing that if I moved she would wake.~ Rachel Cusk, ”A Life’s Work: On Becoming a Mother
  • Post title Inspired by Albert Einstein’s quote: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

  8. I looked at the Mom’s portfolio of her beautiful family…so endearing, such cherished memories …a military family in Michigan…3 tow headed boys, a sweet baby girl with Red Hair (a photo clearly shows this where she is sitting on a couch with her cat!) every day life of a beautiful family and so hard looking at a photo of one of the boys I think the middle boy, getting his head shaved, he’s wearing a hospital bracelet and has been diagnosed with leukemia, so unbearable to see a little one who is going through such a journey <<< and I think back to Thursday getting acquainted with the beauty boutique of wigs, hats and scarfs for the patients who have the need…and I know that "Each Breath Is A Gift" and I Am So Grateful…
