A Life of Grace

Secret Stuff

I’ve been working on a few sewing projects whenever I can squeeze a simultaneous happy moment or two out of the boys. One of them is top-secret for now (got you curious?) and the other is that pile of stuffed animals for the little craft fair coming up soon. They’re turning out super cute and I get such a great feeling of happiness seeing them take fuzzy shape before me.

Titus totally loves cutting stuff up right now so I’m trying to keep his scissors in an intelligently out of reach place and help him concentrate his efforts onto sensible cutting. Organic shirt’s that mom found on sale and totally loves are a “no”. Old laundered wipes are a “yes”. All hair on all members of our family are a “no”. Unless I’m helping. He went down for his nap yesterday while I was still cutting up my little secret project and, to his utter wonderment, when he awoke it was nearly all assembled. Mom makes magic.

He got a much need hair cut today. I’ve been getting grossed out by his permanently crusty nose, his shaggy, greasy mop, and his blueberry stained face which I can’t seem to keep clean for more than a moment. I think it helped.


We’re off to Portland for four days on a last minute trip under slightly less than ideal circumstances: our Nana, Pat’s step mother, is having surgery next week. We love her so much and are praying for the best possible outcome. Pat’s whole family is full if these amazingly strong and beautiful women and I have a lot of learning to do. A lot to re-learn. I hope to have all them around for a long, long time to come.
