First a howling blizzard woke us,
Then the rain came down to soak us,
And now before the eye can focus -
Crocus. ~Lilja Rogers
(Bannon's copywork poem)
The kids are running in the gardens and outdoors with a big pink ball, the puppy, and each other. We are watching and picking lots and lots of yellow trout lilies, expectantly watching the daffodil buds, and eyeing all the frog eggs in the pond. The tulip greens, and crocus flowers are cute as a button right now. Beatrix Potter stories are being read, and Among the Farmyard People as well. Staying here* in heart and mind is a challenge as it seems distractions are aplenty. But when I do, the satisfaction finds me, and I remind myself what a blessing it is to be a mom.
