Little Miss 'I'm involved in EVERYthing'

If Mikah had her way, she would be involved in EVERY activity the school, church, city, club offered... and I'm one tired Mama to prove it *sigh!

Good things come from rainy days...

She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of the fear.
She let go of the judgements.
She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.
She let go of the committee of indecision within her.
She let go of all the 'right' reasons.
Wholly and completely, without hesitation or  worry, she just let go.
She didn't ask anyone for advise.
She didn't read a book on how to let go.
She didn't search the scriptures.
She just let go.
She let go of the memories that held her back.
She let go of all the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.
She let go of the planning and all the calculations about how to do it just right.
She didn't promise to let go.
She didn't journal about it.
She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper.
She did not check the weather report or read her daily horoscope.
She just let go.
She didn't call her friends to discuss the matter.
She didn't do a five-step spiritual mind treatment.
She didn't call the Prayer Line.
She didn't utter one word.
She just let go.
No one was around when it happened.
There was no applause or congratulations.
No one thanked her or praised her.
No one noticed a thing.
Like a leave falling from a tree, she just let go.
There was no effort.
There was no struggle.
It wasn't good and it wasn't bad.
It was what it was, and it is just that.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be.
A small smile came over her face.
A light breeze blew through her, and the sun and the moon shone forevermore.

Jett, you're 8 years old today, but you'll always be my baby!  I'm so proud of how incredibly smart, and intuitive you are, but even more than that, I love the brave, funny, and kind little boy you have become!!!. To know that I get the privilege to wake up each day, and watch you grow, and become who it is that you are becoming, is a blessing that takes my breath away. You and your sisters have saved me in ways you'll NEVER understand...
'I'll eat you up, I love you so'

WHERE has the time gone :(
