A Morning of Moments

A Morning of Moments

Waking Up
A blessed moment

My first sip of coffee, delicious
A pleasant moment

A hug from Alexandra
A heart warming moment

Jayson telling me about t-ball.  It seems that Alexandra is the most polite player.  She hit the ball.  Laid the bat down.  Retrieved the ball and put it on the tee for the next batter.  And then she ran the bases.
A proud moment

Cuddling with Alexandra and waiting for Isabel to wake
A relaxing moment

The thud and screams of Isabel, she has fallen off the bed.
A terror filled moment

Gingerly picking Isabel up and holding her tight, tears in my eyes.
A fearful moment

Seeing the little swollen nose and red mark on Izzy's sweet face.
A sad moment

The big smile from Izzy that lights the room.
A relieved moment

The giggles of Alex and Izzy.
A thankful moment

Alex kissing Izzy.  "Izzy, don't do that again.  You made me scared.  You are my best friend.  I love you."
A tearful moment

A morning walk with the girls.
An inspiring moment

Playing with Izzy
A fun moment

An art project with Alexandra
A patient moment

Chores all done
And all before 10:00 am
An accomplished moment

Alexandra holding Isabel's hand while she napped
A precious moment

If we measured success in moments, then this morning I became the richest woman on earth.  Treasure the moments, for they are fleeting.  Treasure the moments for they are the memories.  Treasure the moments, once gone they will never come back.  Treasure the moments.

Celebrating Chaos

whirling thoughts
flashing images
fragile dreams
fleeting hope
self doubt
rising resolve
budding ideas
anxious fear
painful past
pleasant memories
building passion
dawning desire
points of light
crashing thunder
deafening silence

a driving force

a perfect storm

creativity is born

There are times in my life when everything seems to be out of control.  My head spins, my heart beats faster and I want to hide my head under the covers.  These moments have been my greatest inspiration, they have given birth to my greatest ideas and they have strengthened my determination.  These moments have encouraged and sometimes forced me to be more than I had ever dreamed.  These moments have taught me to trust and believe in myself.  These moments have given birth to the phoenix within.
