~finally learning how to make oatmeal right after all these years.
~warm, golden sunlight resting on snowy mountain glory.
~starting the chili (from scratch and enough for multiple meals. SCORE!) early in the day, leaving the busy afternoon freed up.
~taking the time to play a game with an eager, thankful little son.
~the delightful discovery of little, wriggly worms hiding under rocks in the garden.
~noontime check-in calls.
~a caring and always generous Mama giving so much from her heart to fill mine (ours). Today's abundance visit: a piano lesson, Salt Water Taffy to enjoy on the way home, a Baggie full of our favorite cookies (that only she can make), new "bling" to make me fancy, a tight hug, a kiss on the cheek, and a knowing, intimate "I love you, honey."
~two kids clamoring and crowding on the couch to see who gets to sit next to Mom.
~before bedtime homemade milkshakes.
~a seeking, grown man son laying down next to me before I turned out the light, wanting to share with him his day's work challenges. To look at and listen to him deeply.
