ordinary beauty


   Nitty-gritty moments in life that sigh messy, hard and beautiful all at the same time.  This is home life;   Avacados, mint-blue skies, the sun gracefully touching the horizon on it's descent, doodles with ink, raindrops that sit on the window pane, tingling with joy with the satisfaction of being under warm quilts, mint tea sipped slowly, relishing the moment, fingers flying on the piano, clean counters, ironing, organized cutlery drawers, and noise. Ordinary beauty holds so much. 
  
     In reality, life has been quite hard as of late. It seems as though I've just realized what having a big family is like... I know, there's been 5 kids in my home now for 3 years (since little sister was born); and now everything seems to have been turned up a notch.  The volume of noise and mess had gone up in the pass year -- literally!  The noise my little brothers produce seems to have gone up.  I think it helps that they found a new best friend -- Tyler.  Who's already five times louder then them. 



But here's to celebrating the ordinary beauty in life.  Ordinary moments that make my heart swell.  Because, (I have to admit):  the beautiful moments in life tend to outweigh the bad ones.
