one of the beautiful things about this month of ordering has been the jewels that i have found when i did not know they were lost. when i was preparing the laundrette (formerly known as the green room) for painting, i had to take down the shelving which meant that i had to put everything elsewhere. so, the ordered kitchen had to become unordered again.
anyhooo, there was a clump of my children's special papers and a box of photos on it and i had a chance to go through them all over again. this was from one of sage's writing journals from gradeschool. and, guess what? it is raining.
rain is one of those things that we celebrate around here and a reason to call each other and say 'hey, it is raining and i thought of you.' when the three kids were little, we would bake and make pots of tea and just marvel at the rain. boothe called yesterday because it was raining. seriously, this little family could make seattle proud.
when i revisited sage's sweet handwriting, it really opened up floodgates of mother emotion. i long for those days that i was at the helm of his safety and good choices. he is now at a place where i can't do anything, but love him...and that is a terribly hard place to be.
so, if you are of the praying sort, please pray for my son sage, the path of good choices, living life to his fullest potential and using the talents that God gave him. if you are not of the praying kind, please light a candle for him and whisper the aformentioned things.
the power of prayer and candlewhispering is undeniable and i would appreciate it.
