Eric Jerome Dickey wrote: “Every day, a million miracles begin at sunrise.”
This is the energy I want to bring to my every morning. I aspire to start my day in prayer; some days it happens, other days it doesn’t. Sometimes, despite the best intentions, my emotional focus rolls away from me like yarn. When I am too scattered to put myself in the right frame of mind for prayer, I think I will repeat these words to myself — a prayer in their own way, anyhow. In them are hope and wonderment. In them are a firm planting in the rhythms of the natural world: the sun still rises and the branches still bend and tomorrow there will be more crocuses opening their slender petals to the sun in the embankment of dirt along our driveway.
Rallying around the miracles today.
+What energy are you sending out today?
+Dickey’s words also bring fresh color to the Oliver poem I wrote about earlier this week.
+Are you an optimist?
+I ordered these pink Vejas for myself.
+Ulla Johnson vibes in the prettiest shade of lilac for under $70.
+Adore the periwinkle blue color on this dress. I own this dress in a different pattern and it is SO dramatic and flattering on. I find this dress runs small — the smocking is very tight/not as stretchy as, say, a nap dress.
+A beautiful embossed condolence card.
+Just a reminder that these are the best pens on earth. I am obsessed. Love the colors, the ultra fine tip, the gel ink, and the feel of the pens themselves.
+Have you seen Banana’s new children’s collection? I am swooning over this precious set. The pattern is so good!
+Some great spring knits!
+Adorable gingham swimsuit from Old Navy.
+Pink soccer cleats for your little lady!
+This sweatshirt can be personalized with embroidered hearts with each of your children’s names in it! Such a cute Mother’s Day gift.
+These trousers are in my cart in the olive green.
