365 Days, Day 16

Today Ariel (still feeling poorly!) wanted me to come and lie outside in the sun with her on a blanket. My immediate thoughts were: can't do that now, have washing/cleaning/painting to do... How often does one's 19 year old daughter ask you do something as beautifully simple as lying outside together on the lawn on the grass under a tree? How many more times am I going to be privileged enough to have her ask me that? I gathered (colour co-ordinated) pillows, blankets and scarves and went to join her. My little blessing, you have no idea how much I adore being with you, and being even a tiny part of your life... Thank you for times we have had together and the times we will still have together.
Bloodline. I yearn for my boys...

the churning
the waiting
the restlessness
below the surface
the cocoon silk
ever stronger
will unfurl
when the time
is right
