I'm taking a few minutes in the middle of the day to blog. Or rather to continue my list of gifts, my reminder of the moments and the special things that happen every.single.day. Whether I'm watching for them or not. And today I'm feeling the need to remind myself, to look beyond how I feel right now or how my house looks and be grateful.
washer and dryer to do all that laundry for me
glass pitcher filled with lemon-infused water, making drinking enough water a pleasant task
a good night's sleep
a basement suite that stays somewhat cool even when it is really warm outside
a spray park just across the road
friends who have us over for dinner and are totally relaxed about kids and messes
the way my little girl's hair curls when it's wet
special times with the girls of the family
Kilmeny's delight in her first daddy-daughter date
the way she needs a kiss after she gets an 'owie'
knowing that this heat isn't nearly as bad as last summer's heat wave
Sunday afternoons to talk and talk and sort many things out
knowing that today is a gift, and I don't have to worry about the rest of the week or month but just enjoy today
What are you enjoying today?
