Monday Morning Moment of Reflection

I have decided to dedicate Monday mornings to a time of reflection from the weekend past. As a parent, as many of you experience, weekends are often so busy and packed that there is little time to think about what's happened, how much has changed or the awesomeness of life with a child.

And, being a rather chatty Cathy myself, I will be taking a less is more approach (my husband's mantra) and sharing moments of reflection as an opportunity to savor the experiences, which have indeed been captured with photos, but feel it necessary to share in words as well.

One additional point before getting started is that I will be sharing these thoughts in the form of Haiku -- the Japanese form of poetry. It's a writing approach that connected Daniel and I years ago and one that enables me to pack a punch with fewer words but greater meaning.

Enjoy!!!

A Reflection from the Weekend In the Form of Haikus

Princess party fun
Museum, breakfast, sun with friends
Little girls dressed up
-------------------------------------------
Princess and the Frog
Dancing, singing, twirling 'round
Staying cool laughing
-------------------------------------------
Hot day to stay in
Organize clothes, Sarah's toys
Share, donate with friends
-------------------------------------------
Princess and the Frog
Dancing, singing, twirling 'round
Staying cool laughing

Summer night outdoors
Pizza, princesses, salad
Family time fun
-------------------------------------------
Loving her puzzles
Spread across the table top
Staying cool, learning
-------------------------------------------
Tired from weekend
Reflecting on fun we had
Enjoyed summer sun

  2. Thanks thesupwomen blog for reading my post. I read your reflective post as well. I also find it ironic that you just did a post on clutter when this past weekend it was, for me, an opportunity to clear out some of our clutter too. Come on by and visit again. I will see you on your site too. :)
