Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.

I’ve lost many friends in this season. maybe not literally, but my friendships have changed. I lost quality time because of work hours. I gave up social interactions for hobbies. and my friends are moving on without me. But as I mourn these loses, I sit here with the little boy who currently holds my heart, watching him sleep & praying over his life, I realize this is exactly where I want to be. my job is where I know I’m supposed to be right now, but this contentment is where I want to be. I have chosen this time in my life, not out of financial necessity or out of boredom, but because I care about this boy and his family more than most. I can’t quite explain the relationship we have, to have traveled with, entered into a home, met the whole family, called the paramedics with, been to the hospital with, and seen life happen with. It’s different than anything else, special in it’s own way. we have this bond, C and I, one that comes from often putting him to bed, praying with him, rocking him to sleep, and kissing him goodnight. when he says, “goodnight tabitha, I love you” my heart melts and I realize that I can’t leave this just yet.

I’m thankful for my friendships & for my little community. I just wish the sun would rise faster, because then I will all be alright.

I should not be up this early thinking about reasons I can’t do my job anymore… So I’ll tell myself I love it
- great gym
-love my kids
-love what I do
-perks
-great parents
-fun-ish coworkers
-work community
-I’ve met the best people

2 weeks, then camp.
But I might never come back.

This is a lion making a kill in the wild. I know it’s very graphic but I think it’s important to show just how brutal nature can be.

buckbarrow:

do you ever have second-hand obsessions

like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend
