right now

I am :

~ waiting for these babies and hoping they will be sooner rather than later
~ treading slowly through the days as I get bigger and movement becomes more difficult
~ writing lists and lists- baby needs, house jobs, errands to be done, Xmas, animals chores, cleaning jobs and it goes on.
~ suddenly aware of how little I have in preparation for two new little ones soon to join our family
~ having bouts of wide-awakeness at night (and so mentally making more lists)
~ grateful that husband is able to be home more
~ trying to yield to what is and where life is at and let go of all that I haven't or won't be able to get done before babies
~ so happy with my new purchase for our newly relocated bedroom
~ feeling rich from the love and ease of spending a weekend with the best girls ever.
~ eating oranges, fresh juices, berries, and tomato and cheese on corn thins
~ waking up to the sound of our white silky rooster
~ thinking of ways to spend some special time with my oldest three before the babies arrive- cups of tea and a movie, snuggles in bed with a book, stay-up-late night...any other ideas?
~ missing terribly the closeness of friends
~ watching the garden come to life after the hard work of one very special lady
~ wishing for a magic wand that would clean and organize this busy home 

~ enjoying the talent of our 11 yr old as he cooks yumminess for us: this one is apple and berry pie
~ and here are more right now's around here....

right now we are all waiting. Quietly loud excited conversations. Rushing back from the swimming hole. Hoping. are they here yet. Are they here yet. But the moments of birth will come with Hjs holy breathing. xxxxxxxxxx
