My Little Flowers


April 18, 2012 by themommahen


I’m no Ann Geddes, but I know someday I’ll look back on these pictures and smile.


Like tomorrow.


Or 10 years from now. Gah! Ten years will fly by. Just look at the last 10. So for now, I will contiue my mantra of living in the moment. (Which, believe me, I aspire to do this, as I don’t always achieve it.)


Today is here.

I will enjoy it.


Tomorrow will come.

I will savor it.


Along with the seeds

I sow.


And the inevitable weeds,



and droughts.


Because love

When planted

Grows love


My harvest

is plentiful

and good.

    Love love love this, from the photos to the sentiment. (My little guy is in your neck of the woods this week – his first trip to NC without his mama. Feels like a milestone, for sure.) xo

    Thank you Margie! (I can’t wait for someone at Posterous to figure out how to respond to individual comments.)

When Daddy suggests a #bonfire to celebrate fall weather and continued healing. #justwhatthedoctorordered #laughteristhebestmedicine #latergram Homeward bound! He's out, waking up, went well. Huge thanks to everyone for all the prayers, texts, messages, good thoughts, mojo, juju, etc.  More details to come. Trying to keep him flat on his back not moving, which, if you know this boy, you know that is not easy. #thumbsup Our older boy, my H2, has had episodes of SVT (rapid heart rate) for five years now. It was managed with medication for a while, then seemed to go away, but then came back last school year. Due to the unpredictability of it and the resulting disruption and anxiety it causes him, he is scheduled for a heart ablation catheterization procedure tomorrow early in the morning. Hopefully the doctors will be able to find and eliminate the extra electrical pathways responsible. Fortunately, this is a pretty routine procedure with great success rates. But as the saying goes, no surgery or procedure is minor if it's happening to you or a loved one. We welcome prayers, good vibes, positive thoughts, juju, mojo, whatever our friends can muster. (This picture was taken two weeks ago during an echocardiogram. He was fascinated, and I couldn't help but remember the first time I got to hear that same, sweet heartbeat...) ❤ Totally disturbing. #halloween H2 suggested we go on a nature walk yesterday through the woods with walkie talkies. (And BB guns, of course, because, boys.) It was hot, it was muggy, it was thorny, it was spider webby, it was buggy, it was tiring. 
We found a snapping turtle shell and almost perfect skeleton, a giant orb weaver spider in all its splendor, a great place for a fort, lots of obstacles to traverse, and a new path home. And that made it all worth it.
