peaceful like a monet sunset

the house is quiet.
the cat curled up at my feet.
outside, the world is covered again in snow.
ideas are bubbling in my brain and sleep seems distant.

sabin went with her after school club to do her christmas shopping today.
they took the train.
and probably a bit too much money.
she felt so proud.
and impossibly big.
and was bouncing with excitement about what she bought.
she's so looking forward to christmas.

and she only bought a couple of items for herself.
she is her mother's daughter, after all.

these days i'm finding so much peace.
and energy (which sounds at odds, but really it's not).
and so many ideas.
and wishing i'd known much sooner that i'd feel this way.
as peaceful as a monet sunset.

this post is written in homage to the fabulous tara, whose posts always remind me to live in the moment. and i wanted to see my post form on the page like hers. only hers are always more full of peace than mine could ever be. go and read them, drink them in, you won't be sorry.

Peace = energy.

I love that. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to find peace. Yet look at all we get when we do.

Glorious photo!
