the little one is off having adventures with her papa and i find myself here alone, with my fourth cup of tea and third piece of chocolate, working and working and working some more. so much work (and jobs!) to make this a possibility.
thinking about her, her smile, and her giggles, and just how much she's been chattering excitedly non-stop (i must admit, i am enjoying the mental space right now!), and how we've been doing so much together...journaling, painting, sketching, biking, running, walking, cooking, eating, exploring, laughing, and enjoying.
it's funny how life can shift so much on a daily basis. i've learned that having any type of expectations really just doesn't get me anywhere. hopes and dreams? sure. but really...being right here, right now is the most important thing. knowing that even this moment will not last, and i'll be experiencing something so entirely different and maybe even unexpected before i know it.
i think that's my lesson right now...one that i am so desperately trying to learn and master. no expectations...just living right now in whatever this moment brings. knowing it is perfect, and the next moment will be perfect too, because that's exactly what i'm supposed to be doing.
yup. i think that's it. for now anyway...
