You remember how "The Nothing" was destroying all of Fantasia? The act of nothing was eating away an entire world but sometimes I think that "nothingness" is what rejuvenates us, too. Having "nothing" to do and all the time in the world to do it.
We had a remarkably low-key weekend and as the sun was setting on Sunday and we all ventured outside, I just sat and tried to breathe it all in. Dinner was on the stove, warm biscuits were in the oven, and I was on my back porch surrounded by my 4 loves. Conversation drifted from Halloween to soccer to dance clothes and I just wanted to bottle it up and keep it that way forever.
I never want to forget the way she holds a pencil insisting that's the only way she can do it.
I want to remember how serious he takes everything.
How careful he is with projects and how much time and effort he gives to every tiny detail.
I hope she's always so proud of herself and always confident in what she creates.
I hope she always fills her blank pages with creativity and love and hard work.
And I pray that we find more days filled with the nothingness that reminds me it's those moments that matter most. The unplanned memories that last a lifetime.
