What a few weeks we've had.
Thank you for all of your tweets, emails and facebook posts. We survived Irene with very, very minimal damage. The summer garden was pretty much destroyed. But other than that we escaped with little more.
Which leaves me thinking about those up the coast a bit more who are still experiencing power outages and flood waters.
Our thoughts are with all of you.
Today is a busy, busy day...
haircuts, first soccer practices of the season, teacher meet n' greets, etc.
As with so many themes in my life, it was the little things that amazed me during the hurricane...a little hummingbird visiting the window in the middle of some of the strongest winds of the three days, looking for the feeder in its usual spot...wings just humming right along as if nothing was any different.
I want to be the hummingbird in the middle of the strong winds.
The garden spider that went right back to building a new web even before the rains had ceased...while we were still hunkered down indoors with the power off.
I want to be like the garden spider, so focused on the work at hand and not the dramas in life.
And the morning glories that continued to open and close in perfect timing even without the sun shining brightly.
As always, thank you for the lessons little creatures.
