"Much of my reading time over the last decade and a half has been spent reading aloud to my children. Those children's bedtime rituals of supper, bath, stories, and sleep have been a staple of my life and some of the best, most special times I can remember."
~ Louise Brown
Just my youngest and I were at home this evening. He is ten now and shares my love of stories and quiet moments. It is a poignant pleasure to spend time with someone who is growing so fast. He is becoming something new and something more every day, and yet keeping that bright lively spirit that he has had since his first breath.
A little while ago, we sat down together to a very simple supper of roasted vegetables and lemon quinoa pilaf. Now, he is nibbling a few of the left over roasted chickpeas and reading near me on the couch as I write this.
Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you quiet moments.
