I bought Anna her first pair of Converse sneakers (are they sneakers? not sure.) today. She asked to go shoe shopping and she picked them out. She’s also, in my biased opinion, the most adorable person as she flips through books quietly by herself at bedtime (she rarely wants us to read to her).
Jules is adding words weekly to her vocabulary — Off, On, Up, Ball. Her hair is wild, all the time. And she’s doing this thing, no matter where or what she’s doing, when she pats the space next to her to let you know she wants you to sit. Also, look at this curl.
They both love piggyback rides and jumping in rain puddles.
I’ve had some major ‘good love deposits’ with them individually recently and my relational tank feels full.
The verses about life being vaporous have been circling my mind recently, sobering and inspiring. If I only have this moment then I want to be fully here for it, life in the company of my people and Shepherd.
