This aura,,,,the palpable presence that just surrounds us with such peace and joy. We truly spend a good part of our days with laughter and smiles from Little Misses ways....her comments, her singing, her just being.
Today we had such a delightful Sunday. Katrina is home from Camp PALs [and boy does she have lots of wonderful stories to share]........and Otto headed off to the shore [Ocean City, NJ....my old stomping ground] for the week with his best friend Michael and his father. Rick called from Italy and is missing home very much [not common for him, but this has been a long trip this time]. We talked to Nana & PopPop and Grammy & PopPop......we did laundry, cleaned, read books, worked on finalizing our homeschooling plans, meditated at the lake and sang songs.
This is the song that reminded me the most of our sweet little girl.....so Today, I put every album I own from James Taylor [and that is all of them! lol!] and we filled the house and yard with music and just celebrated life on this rainy, but absolutely serene and beautiful Sunday.
"Something in the Way She Moves"
by James Taylor
There's something in the way she moves,
Or looks my way, or calls my name,
That seems to leave this troubled world behind.
And if I'm feeling down and blue,
Or troubled by some foolish game,
She always seems to make me change my mind.
And I feel fine anytime she's around me now,
She's around me now
Just about all the time
And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now,
She's been with me now quite a long, long time
And I feel fine.~~~~~~
It isn't what she's got to say
But how she thinks and where she's been
To me, the words are nice, the way they sound
I like to hear them best that way
It doesn't much matter what they mean
If she says them mostly just to calm me down
Every now and then the things I lean on lose their meaning
And I find myself careening
Into places where I should not let me go.
~~ She has the power to go where no one else can find me
And to silently remind me
Of the happiness and the good times that I know, got to know
