Gifts

Yesterday morning, when my son was home sick (well, not totally sick anymore, but we were following the 24-hour-without-fever rule), we hung out on the couch all morning while he drew and I read. We chatted and laughed and then later danced together to Lyle Lovett.

Yesterday evening, my daughter put her hands on my face, stroked my hair, and said, "You're beautiful."

Thank God I have these moments to throw perspective on the so-called challenges of life.

Darlings both. You're going to be so glad someday when you can come back to this blog to remember these little gifts :)

Soemtimes a quiet sit on the sofa is all you need. Sounds like a nice day.
