here are a few things i find myself grateful for lately

for the beautiful support from so many of you for my book
(my scanner isn't wide enough to show every name ~ my cup overflows)

for the wee steps in starting a new one

for the steps of all i love both far + near
(here, a photo of our oldest, abe, in shadow in the middle back)

+ for my word of the year ((held))
+ how it continues to find me
(photo of my dad, who passed a few years ago, + i).

there is always goodness to count
because all of our lives count so dearly.
love to you xox

i love your brave steps into that
refreshing clean water
and the fruit of all your yesterday steps
and how your word helps your heart
feel the hold that is always there:)
i'm grateful for my word, too...the bells keep nudging my eyes open
to solution and joy.
it's funny how those little words
can speak.
much peace to you in process
(there is more than enough for all
our hearts hold)
love and heartkisses,

Wishing you all the best, Rachel,
as your light shines and

march forth : )
with all you create--
The picture of you and your dad together is precious.
