tuesday, may 11: sometimes, joy comes quietly. it sneaks up on you, creeps up, and maybe you don't even notice it. you are so consumed with errands and work and to-do lists and the kids' soccer practice and piano practice and tennis lessons that you forget to take a time-out and notice, hey. the sun is shining. or the breeze is blowing. or the wildflowers are spreading their color across the desert. or maybe just realizing that you are breathing and the air is flowing in and out and in and out and wow, isn't that just beautiful?

tweety bird

tuesday, may 4: i step outside and the warm spring air washes over me. i smile when i hear "tweety bird" chirp to me--"tweet, tweet! tweet, tweet!"--and i think of my son, who name the bird and felt such affection for the bird that he was sad to move and leave it behind.
