It’s the everyday ordinaries that are the real miracles. This little mess on my bathroom floor that first started appearing about a year ago, it was the first time I took off the Quail’s shoes after a day at school and a little pile of sand spilled out. The miracle in that is it means that she was up and on the sand filled playground at her school with little buddies. She walked, she played, she made a little mess. Just like any other little kid.

Somehow those messes are more picturesque when they involve cute little shoes (and I don’t have to clean them up – that goes without saying :))
That sand is a really good sign – glad she’s having fun at school!
oh, it sounds so nice and your photo is so cute 🙂
it is the little miracles that makes the everyday precious.
Noticing turns the everyday into magic, doesn’t it?
When my daughter was in kindergarten, everyday I removed the sand from her shoes. Your photo is very symbolic 🙂
What a happy “everyday” outlook!
i think children are very day a miracle!!
My sister, Catherine, sent me a card that read ‘Life is messy. Wear a smock.’ And then she commented that ‘Its a beautiful mess!’ What a lovely art installation on your bathroom floor and so encouraging to know what it signifies…
I love the piles of sand in the shoes too. I think I loved them even more before Claire was walking. It was so important that she be right there with her peers.
your sense for touching detail, the stories these everyday miracles entail…!
Totally agree! It is the little moments that matter the most.
