layla bee insists on wearing her brothers hand me down farm shoes even though they are quite big on her... i must admit it makes me very happy that she loves them so much.
yesterday was one of those days.
i know that you know the kind i mean. the kind where everyone is bickering and arguing about some silly thing or another and it just keeps escalating and spreading. the kind where you feel like you run in circles all day getting nowhere... exhausted in the end with nothing to show for it except the exhaustion and maybe one folded pile of laundry... and still more bickering.
i really dislike those days.
but.... i can appreciate a moment of peace. one unexpected, completely blissful moment where everyone is suddenly happy and getting along. it doesn't last... but it does give you a break... and some hope. it gives you a chance to take a deep breath and smile, maybe for the first time that particular day.
my peaceful moment yesterday was captured in the pictures above. a walk in the rain, just down the road a bit to tend to their grandparents chickens while they were away. one unexpected... completely blissful moment.... and thanks to these pictures..... looking back this moment will be all i remember about that day.
