field of diamonds

Johnny Cash has written (and sung) more than a few of my most favorite songs–one of which is “Field of Diamonds”.  Listening to Johnny Cash and June Carter-Cash sing has to be right up there with sitting on a quilt with my grandparents on late Summer nights.  Knowing, at ten years old, that these moments weren’t infinite.

So.  My littlest one in a field (of diamonds):

{needs. wants. etc.}

There are days (like the one right now) when I feel like I’m going to come out of my skin.  The kind of day when tomorrow can’t come soon enough.  The kind of day when I want to say “Here I am!”.  And yet…and yet, I am here.
