Wow. It has been a while since I blogged. That's a bummer, because I love knowing all the little jewels of info are here for the reading, whenever i want to come back to them. And last year I printed out the blog thus far at that point, and it is a cool book to read and have! Life moves at a rapid pace these days...
Tyler says the funniest things and makes the funniest faces! Here are a few of my current favorites:
After I am gone for a few hours or he is gone overnight, he says "Mommy, long time see you go!" He says it exactly the same way every time. So cute.
THIS face is so classic Tyler right now...
He led the prayer last night. It went something like this: "Fank you, God, (for) my family...fank you, God, (for) fire...fank you, God, (for) my house...fank you, God, (for) Daddy, Jack, Mommy, Colby. FANK YOU! (Instead of Amen)
Tyler started to tell me something today. I think he was going to ask me for help or something. After about 2 seconds he said "Mommy? Nefermine."
Yesterday he hops up from the couch and picks up a toy raquet. He asks me where the ball is and I tell him to look around. He says "I can't fine it." I tell him to look in the little tent we have up that is beside the couch. He looks at me with the straightest face and says "I look there 4 times! I no fine it!" He hadn't even moved! What is this 4 times business?? :D
From Jenn: From a dear friend: “I am also rereading Tattoos on the Heart by Gregory Boyle. He is Jesuit priest who works with gangs in Los Angeles. I have underlined a lot and have thought you might like some of what he says about God, us, how much we are loved, how little God cares about our mistakes. You are welcome to borrow if you want.” Little did she know I had already borrowed it from the library. (Don’t worry @thebrentwoodlibrary, instead of underlining, I took pics of my favorite parts. Lots and lots of pics.) My friend was right. G (as Gregory Boyle is affectionately known) writes beautifully – filling your heart one moment and breaking it the next. “Sometimes resilience arrives in the moment you discover your own unshakeable goodness. Poet Galway Kinnell writes, ‘Sometimes it’s necessary to reteach a thing its loveliness.’ And when that happens, we begin to foster tenderness for our own human predicament. A spacious and undefended heart finds room for everything you are and carves space for everybody else.” That’s what G does. He reteaches, reminds, and rejoices in the loveliness of every single person. He carves room for a bigger God, not the one we’ve made tiny, and a bigger love.
