This past year has been a sea of emotion. Joys and sorrows. Gratefulness and peace.
The ebb and flow, felt as thought I were being pulled out to sea one minute and the next, felt like I was drowning. Once or twice I cried a sea of tears. Tears of joy, frustration and deep sorrow flooded from me. There were days that I just bobbed along peacefully. At times I wrestled fiercely with life, yelling out to God from the quiet of my garden. Some days, I sat quietly and drank it all in; storing up every blessed moment.
There are so many things resting on my heart that warrant sharing but as I ease back to this beloved space I find that I can only share the simple, not the deep.

The piano, on loan to Calamity Farmstead, brings me joy (most) every morning. (Note to self: teach kids new song....'Heart and Soul' is grating on my nerves.)
