winter solstice.


I didn't mean to be gone for this long. We went from G having a sore throat to a roller coaster of scary sick little boy which peaked with the frantic phone calls and urgent care and chest x-rays and febrile seizure...pneumonia. My sweet boy has been very sick. After a week of medicine, nebulizer and lots of love and rest, he is feeling much much better.


So with all of this we have been home for a while now - G is wrapping up medication that requires he avoid any virus exposure/people. So we will stay home through the weekend with lots of fresh smoothies, games, hugs, and holiday kids movies. Just what we need.


Today is the winter solstice. I am thankful we are all happy and well. I am thankful for a dusting of beautiful white snow on this dark day. And I am thankful that the sun will be staying a bit longer every day. Love and light and peace to you all on this solstice.

So glad that G is on the mend, but so very sorry he was suffering. Enjoy the solstice, your weekend, any and all holidays you celebrate. By the way, I LOVE your snowflake window. It's beautiful!!

I'm so glad he is feeling better. Zoe reacted similarly to colds at his age but thankfully has outgrown it. Hopefully G will too.
Merry Christmas and many deep breaths to you all.

Oh, Denise! I haven't been on my own blog in so long and have missed your goings on in the process! While I don't wish for this on your little guy, I am so glad to hear that he is on the mend! This Christmas will be low-key, but a grand opportunity to relax and just be!

Denise, I am so sorry to hear G has been so unwell. That must have been very hard for you all! I hope he is MUCH, MUCH better now. And I hope your holiday/solstice weekend was filled with healing and joy and big grins and smoothies (YUM) and love so big it came out of your windows, poured into the garden, and visited your neighbours. I'm imagining the love, glowing, all around your home.

Thinking of you! And sending fine, warm Australian summer wishes your way :)

Oh, sorry to hear that G was not well... My little guy also had pneummonia back in November -- not fun at all.... Glad to hear that he's on the mend, and hope that your family is all rested and all fully recovered.

I've been worrying about you and G since you haven't posted for so long. I'm hoping that everything is OK and that the hiatus from blogging is not due to more illness!
