Of course, this morning went off without a hitch and I can't post the pictures to prove it because my laptop with the pictures is in need of a good fixing, hopefully tonight. But I can tell you that for Rosie's first day, the Real First Day of School I'm calling it, there was sun and smiles all around.
But now I'm here in this big old quiet house, drinking coffee at my computer while listening to Sarah Harmer and marveling at her lyrics which are like poetry to me and inspire me to no end.
So I thought I'd start with a blog and be grateful for another beautiful day and that I may eat my lunch outside, alone with a book for a little while. Grateful for happy kids at school, grateful for an amazing anniversary party this weekend that we had for Scott's beautiful parents, and grateful for a supportive husband who has made me promise to write during these days alone and not to touch the laundry or other chores.
Grateful for the words that I dream will fill up these days and months and years that are only just beginning to open up before me.
