Dear Teacher, Meet Faith…

This week an assignment came home with Faith, we were to {in so many words} write about our child, letting her teacher know a bit about her. FROM MOM…Faith is amazing!  Not just because she is our daughter, she is just an awesome spirit and kind soul. She is caring and creates true friendships.  She is an incredible artist, she is a beautiful swimmer {4 years on the swim team}.  She is driven by her passions. She is competitive in a healthy way.  She is out-going, fearless and if something is scary to her, she is still willing to step out of her comfort zone and try. She loves food, she likes to run.  She is very creative. Her favorite snack is popcorn.  She is a lover of animals. She is able to speak her mind.  She is funny, witty and even sarcastic.  Anyone who has the chance to know…  Read More…

Those Moments…

One of my most fave moments in a day are the one’s when my children are being with themselves.   You know, that quiet time when the electronics are off, the t.v. is off, the bickering stops and it is just peaceful.  The house may not be together, the laundry is piled up either dirty waiting to be washed or clean and waiting to be put away, dishes are in the sink waiting for the transition to the machine, maybe the floors need cleaning.  But I have learned to stop and enjoy and embrace these moments. The house will be waiting for me, my children are growing fast every day.   We can live and enjoy life with what we have and know that family time is much more valuable than a new IPhone or Playstation. This day was one of those days.  Faith just creating {again} what was she creating?  A…  Read More…

The Winter’s Cold Icicles – By Faith Thomas

Winter, surround me with the cold breeze of the overcast, drought of icicles. Drop me on a cold snow sleet like you did before, oh please. I want to see you, winter, the shower of all snowflakes. I want you to bring me to the snow castle of a far-away land. Will you go there for me? Open me to the cold, harsh secrets that you have been keeping from me. Turn me to the opening of the cloudy blizzard door, oh please. Fill me with darkness, below and above. Oh, oh please, winter, surround me with the cold breeze of the overcast drought of icicles for me. Give me the ice storm, flush out the cloudy world. Drop me to the ground like you forgot me. Drown me with a snowflake blizzard. Give me the power of winter please. Copyright 2012 By Faith Thomas Photo Pixaby        …  Read More…
