My apologies...

I have been a very absent mommy blogger lately and for this I must say, "I'm sorry".  This season is so very full.  It is full of things to do, places to go, people to see, things to read, projects to work on, and things to cook, make and bake.  This is one of those times of the year where I find myself pulling in and bringing my awareness to my family in a way that just doesn't allow me to be "plugged in."

I will say that I do think about this space everyday, and quite often, many many times a day.  I find in this space not only peace but also a community of like-minded people (mothers, mostly) who value and hold dear the very same things that are so close to my heart.  To see all of these wonderful mothers sharing what they do with their children as well as the things they teach and how they teach them--peace, community, creativity, valuing our land, our food and our bodies, conserving, preserving, recycling, up-cycling,  reducing, reusing, repurposing...and more--it is so inspiring!  This space stretches my mothering in a way that I have never felt before.  I am so thankful for each day I have been able to be present in this space and be apart of a community of mothers who both inspire and challenge me to give more of myself to my children and to my family.  To these incredible mothers I say, "thank you! Thank you for being here and thank you for so generously sharing."

I will be back in this space more regularly as our days begin to move a bit more slowly and everyone feels a little more secure in the rhythm of home.  I hope everyone has a very joyful holiday season filled with kindness and love.
