Interesting title name, hope it caught your eye. I will spend hours sometimes trying to think of the right word, that special word that will explain everything in one simple way. Whether I am writing in my journal or scribbling out poetry, the correct word is extremely important. I found this word awhile back and it became one of my favorite words to say, to feel and hold on to. maybe that sounds silly, but just like a song or a picture, one word can say it all. Saudade means: "a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves."
Ah the beauty of being understand. There ARE words that conjure every tear, every sleepless night and somehow capture the deep sadness that never leaves after someone you love so deeply is gone. I love the wistful look on my son's face in this picture. He wanted to visit the horses on the side. He didn't understand why he couldn't just squeeze through and walk across to pet their velvety noses. Much like a child, I feel the longing and wistfulness of wanting to reach past the "fence" that keeps me from those I love on the other side. There has to be others out there who feel this way sometimes. In fact I know there is, I have met several of you!<3 I hope this word gives you the comfort of being understood as it does me. Sending much love out tonight! xx

I thought it would add some lightness to my last post to share this image of my 3 yo facing the retreating storm with Daddy at his side:) We had a bad thunderstorm last night and plenty of rain (which is great for us right now!). Once it all subsided we took my son out for a walk. There wasn't much light and the skies were pretty dark and stormy but it was so sweet to watch my son stride confidently towards the horizon with backup:)

This is the look on my sons faces when I say it's time to go in. And I don't blame them. Around 8:30 the heat has subdued and the cool evening sets in. The skies are lit with a peach and plum glow. There is just enough light that begs one to stay outdoors. I often let my little ones play outside until the light has completely vanished and then we reluctantly go inside. Sometimes we stay out and watch the stars turn on one by one like twinkling lights across the sky, Summer evenings are my favorite part of summer. It's a time to reflect in the refreshing coolness of the evening from the feverish craze of the day. It reminds me of catching a fever when I was kid and my Mom would come and gently touch my forehead to gauge my temperature. Her hands were cool and comforting against my hot head and I could safely drift asleep. Summer evenings are the same way, a time to reflect and let the anxieties of the day softy fade away. How do you find yourself enjoying the Summer? I hope you all are well and having a great summer so far!!:)

My 3 yr old son is terrified of lightning and thunderstorms. I'm not sure where he got the name or idea from but he calls the lightning "The Black Hole". I almost titled the image that but it sounded a little ominous especially if you didn't read the description. In the evenings when the thunderstorms roll in and the faint deep rumbles of thunder are heard, he whispers terrified to himself, "The Blackhole!" Then comes running to my arms. We sit in the darkness and I hold him, stroke his hair and talk to him. We talk about the thunder, I tell him why it happens, I tell him funny stories about it. He just listens with his head on my chest. When the storm is over he's up off my lap and life is good again. Even as an adult I still have fears. They aren't of thunderstorms anymore but they can feel just as real. Maybe it's discouragement, a fear of failure, it can be one and the same and I could definitely label it the Dark Hole at times. When my "thunderstorms" roll in, I am learning to give myself the same consideration as I do my son. Stop, talk myself through it, Sit and think in the quiet. I tell myself the logical side of things, the humorous side of things and even give myself a pep talk. Eventually the thunderstorm ends and I feel like a better version of myself. Facing your fears can just mean dealing with them at times. As long as we come out alright on the other end.
On a lighter note, I love thunderstorms. I love the smell of wet rain on the dirt, the bass of the thunder grumbling in the night and the bright flashes of lightning that light up the dark night. And I love cuddling my little boy;)

There's not too much I can say about this image that it doesn't speak for on its own. Imagine for an instance the last embracing rays of the sun as it slips away. The fresh sweet smell of grass with a subtle trace of horse manure. Shouts and laughter, even arguing will reach your ears as small feet jump and climb the fence. Little shoves, excited and jumbled words as they spot the horses on the pasture. There is magic when the sun goes down...
