A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Whew. Busy, busy, busy weekend. For myself, my family and my friends.

#summerday 1

The weekend events have been life changing, milestone making, and goal challenging (personal, professional & soccer). Some first world problems (first full week of school, first crushing soccer loss, first sorority rush), and some heart crushing.

Delivering a child to college–full of hopes, dreams, and more than a touch of adrenaline/anxiety is monumental (roots and wings) . But it is in a completely different realm than one friend supporting a co-worker whose six-year old child has a brain tumor, a dear friend shopping for daughters wedding dress, and an inspirational conductor on the ‘most patient mommy train’, shared that her father has a terminal diagnosis.

#summerday 2, Thanks SherryFor a moment respite, I see I have an unplanned mini collection on Instragram.

Water. Life giving, life taking, soothing, powerful, and cleansing. (And yes, I am poaching the analogy from baptism prep classes when our kids were infants.)

As I am perpetually distracted, please know that I am sending warm thoughts amongst the chaos. (Do we have bread? Did the date pass for the car to be serviced? Where is the rebate form? Report for work completed? Has anyone scooped the kitty litter?  . . .  Squirrel!)  I hope to support you as much as you have me.old pier, Puget Sound
