“I am in love with this world. I have nestled lovingly in it. I have climbed its mountains, roamed its forests, sailed its waters, crossed its deserts, felt the sting of its frosts, the oppression of its heats, the drench of its rains, the fury of its winds, and always have beauty and joy waited upon my goings and comings.”
“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.” -John Burroughs

lately i've been riding my bike more when i need to run a quick errand around town...i love it!!! It feels so good to be outside and it makes me notice nature more even though we live in the really does  "put my senses in order."

(baby lizzy)
Each day I hug my boy,

I kiss him softly,
I whisper “I love you” into his impressionable ears.

Each day I think about how I could make him smile,

How I could make him feel cared for,
How I could make his day.

Each day I get on the ground and am my son’s playmate,

his best bud.
Each day, I strive to fulfill his need to simply be loved.

No questions asked, no prerequisites needed.
My love is free and that is the greatest gift.
