"i do believe in an everyday sort of magic -- the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like;
the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity;
the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we're alone.”
(charles de lint)
if it was not for my lung surgery, i would not have normally spent an entire wednesday with malena. so, today i am thankful for the full day of fun with my girl.
+++ sleeping in a little bit and watching some cartoons before breakfast
+++ gymnastics class - i think that we might have an olympian on our hands folks. she gets all of her athletic abilities from her mom (i wish).....errrrr, i mean from her dad.
+++ a new ribbon celebrating a walk across the balance beam by herself
+++ concentrating hard on painting pottery with a favorite friend
+++ sharing the umbrella under the rainy skies
+++ making a tour of the pet store and checking out every single animal in the store. every single animal. more than once. we were in there a long time. but totally worth it:) maybe she will be an olympic athlete/veterinarian when she grows up?
+++ painting a variety of animals with our paints, she chooses the animals for me to draw
and then she paints them. we are quite the artistic duo - and i think that we all know who she gets her craftiness from (and it isn't her dad).
so much to be thankful for, a day full of fun memories with my favorite girl.
it was a day full of the everyday sort of magic. my favorite kind.
