when i was cleaning up the garden, these pumpkins really made me happy and grateful. this has been one of those harvest years that i get to compare where i was a year ago to where my toes are planted today. the changes and tweaks are quite evident. this year was a "just jump!" year. those words are ridiculously easy to say to your friends, but freaking hard to heed them yourself.
as this little house is still asleep and the chickens are fed, i am surrounded by a peace that only a quiet morning knows. quiet mornings tend to make me very reflective. this year has been one that contained the gift of being believed in, chances taken, new friends embraced, old friends (re)embraced, new paths journeyed, new gardens worked, goodbyes, letting go, hellos, freedom (which i am still getting used to owning), beloved children on their own paths, new traditions and things learned.
ooh, and add ---things unlearned, too.
