my versions of motherhood and wifery, friendship and sisterhood.
LOVE has come for you.

It would be so easy for the church friends to forget about my kids. We live 35 minutes away (yes, this is MN: we measure distance in time. Existential, really). Every time they get invited to a birthday, I feel so happy they are remembered. Many parties are on Saturdays when I work, but I do my best to get them out to celebrate those Sunday School friend birthdays. I see Theo holding himself back from playing with the boys. I can't force him to join in. But Suvi lives for a good party. This afternoon my friend, who is also my sister's niece, picked up & dropped off Suvi for her daughter's party. Because I had a client, and because K (my friend/the Mom) knows how important it is to feel like part of the crew.
The other invites make me sigh in relief. This one makes my eyes leak a little.
