Here I am
This is the second part of my last post "First Words" you can read here.
Here I am
May I greet the dawn, always, with these words! And greet the everyday routines of preparing meals, sweeping up crumbs, folding laundry, feeding dogs, and homeschooling with the same.
Here I am---Here.
Conscious that the mundane moment in the gift, this heart, this breath is the gift. These eyes are a gift. These ears. These hands. This moment is an opportunity to SEE--to be fully alive and awake
May I carry that attitude with me when I meet my children; look into their eyes. Here I am, Zach, Sierra, Savannah. Your Mommy is here. Right here. With you. To listen, to play, to laugh, to pray.
I want to know you.
May I carry that attitude with me when I greet my husband. Here I am, Love. For you. My heart, my soul, my body. I'm here. Not stuck in the mess of the afternoon squabbles or the grimy counters or the hope for a moment's peace to myself. But for this moment, here with you.
Here I am.
Present in your presence
