Looking at life through my own Sweet Peas makes the things I have look so much more valuable. A presence in the kitchen, pressing tiny hands into bread dough; outside that window, boys play in rare washes of sunlight.



Silence leaves room for human voices, and welcomes laughter and thought; it opens gardens where eyes meet and hearts lock; where love is given the strength to get up yet one more time to dust cheeks with good night kisses.

This tiny life seems quite wonderful, after all.
