my big two are off without mumma, for seven whole nights... to have fun in the big wide world, my umbilical bungee ropes stretched very long! i feel the sweetness and pain of our geographical separation.
i know other mamas whose children are across seas, oceans, continents.... tonight they too are praying and wishing and dreaming and smiling and sighing - no matter where they are in the world or how old..... our babies are still just that.
here's a moment from my day that reminds me of beauty, of light, of the colours of the rainbow all around us, the shifting nature of stormy clouds, the god in all things, the precariousness of a bubble..... and the importance of being stretchy!
without stretch there would be no bubbles. no birth. no leaves. no petals. no bread. no run. no jump. no growy. no dancey dance. no yoga. no cats. no balloons. no sexy. no patience. no love.
stretching is gooooooooooooood!!!!!!!!
