kindred spirit

the house was peaceful for a minute this afternoon.
peaceful minutes are hard to come by in these new days as a mother of three littles.

during my minute:
gavin was deep nap sleeping
pandora was singing straight to my heart
-belated promise ring (iron + wine)
-and then you (greg laswell)
-nobody knows me at all (the weepies)
-all the way (glen hansard)
a dear friend was baby laboring at home just down the street
the perfect little ray of sunshine was peeking through our skylight
the mailman dropped a big box from canada on my doorstep
i snapped a picture of “wild charlie” lying in the sliver of sunlight.
turned up the pretty tunes and carefully opened my happy mail.

i can easily count on one hand a small handful of people that i have met and instantly felt a tug at my heart strings.

joanna is one of them.


  1. i like joanna. i hope she comes over again. and i like wild charlie. please send me some more picture of his cheeks.

  2. I love the way kindred spirits fill our souls deeply. It's almost like supercharging your own soul just by connecting with theirs.

  3. congrats on the new little one. your days will never be the same with three littles running around, but they'll definitely be better than you could have ever imagined!!! and somehow those kindred spirits know just when to send little bits of sunshine right at the right moment!
