(Almost) Sunday Snapshots

I'm taking refuge 
in this snowless winter, 
waiting for the sun to turn on it's course 
through infinity.

I'm holding on to every 


 of love 
I have left,
treasuring it
like the air I breathe. 

This January day was unusually 

and it held me

as I reminded myself to enjoy the chaos, 
enjoy the craziness of children, 
and to enjoy the silence 
that falls 
when the rooms in my home 
empty and cold.  

This is my mindset, a shield to buffer against the 
sharp edges
of insanity as it tries to argue that things should be 


than they are.  

But I know better.

Things are perfect 

just like this. 

This life, the one God gave me,

is flawless

within the walls of it's own


This is the life I was meant to live. 

How do I know?  

I'm living it.
