grated crocuses

                             open your eyes
                             and see 
                             what you can see 
                             with them
                             before they close

                                    - anthony doerr
                                      all the light you cannot see
it has been an eye opening week...
volunteering with the dovetail program at the cridge centre for the family 
has exponentially increased my gratitude index for this life given to me.
working with women and children who come from abusive homes 
has really opened up my eyes to how very delicate the structure of the family is 
and how important our job as mothers truly is.

oh... but these women are strong !!!
and the children have such resilience and beautiful eyes !!!

wishing you all a wonderful weekend



  1. I love your quote today :) You are doing wonderful things volunteering and it's amazing what we have to be grateful for in our lives.

    1. I love that quote too...he uses it several times in the book. Volunteering is such a gift (to me), and this one in particular is extra special.

  2. That's definitely a good quote to live by - and it sounds like you've had an eye opening week in the best way.
