By Rachel Awes on March 25, 2013

here are a few things i find myself grateful for lately
for the beautiful support from so many of you for my book
(my scanner isn’t wide enough to show every name ~ my cup overflows)
for the wee steps in starting a new one
for the steps of all i love both far + near
(here, a photo of our oldest, abe, in shadow in the middle back)
+ for my word of the year ((held))
+ how it continues to find me
(photo of my dad, who passed a few years ago, + i).

there is always goodness to count
because all of our lives count so dearly.
love to you xox

    refreshing clean water
    and the fruit of all your yesterday steps
    and how your word helps your heart
    feel the hold that is always there:)
    i’m grateful for my word, too…the bells keep nudging my eyes open
    to solution and joy.
