Outside my window … the day was a frosty, cold one and as I type this the sun is setting and we are settling in for a cold night of snow and wind. It’s our first real storm of the season.
I am thinking … that summer just wasn’t long enough for me.
I am thankful … for this post of Tsh’s over at The Art of Simple. I felt myself exhale mentally while reading it because she says many of the things that I’ve been feeling in my own heart. The internet has gotten very loud and I don’t want to just be a part of the noise. I want what you read here to be something that’s real, comes from my heart, and isn’t written for numbers or sponsors or with the goal of having a post go viral (not that those things aren’t nice, but that shouldn’t be the endgame). Or even because I’ve got this simple parenting thing all figured out (uh, because I don’t).
So, I guess what I’m saying is that I’m thankful for quiet, old-fashioned blogging and for this space to do it for all these years (next month will be five years for me at SimpleKids). And I’m thankful to all of YOU for making Simple Kids a small part of your lives, too.
