Some Moments Truly Are Sublime

Now that the holiday is here, I just want to snuggle down with Ian and Lucas and forget about everything else for a while.

Lucas didn’t nap today. When I have a lot of work on my plate, this really stresses me out. The silver lining of no-nap days is that he sometimes falls asleep in my arms while I sing to him before bed. When the wiggling and the arguing and the attitude cease–when he drifts off while we rock–a great rush of love flows through me. I feel the stillness of the day. I feel a stillness in my heart. I soak in this feeling. It heals me. I greedily rock him extra long before laying him gently in his bed for the night.

    Thanks for visiting! I’m Sara, editor and writer, wife to Ian, and mother of two precious boys. I am living each day to the fullest and with as much grace, creativity, and patience as I can muster. This is where I write about living, loving, and engaging fully in family life and the world around me. I let my hair down here. I learn new skills here. I strive to be a better human being here. And I tell the truth.

    Our children attend Waldorf school and we are enriching our home and family life with plenty of Waldorf-inspired festivals, crafts, and stories.
