numbering the gifts


the way she settles down as I rock my baby to sleep 

 the way my Khaira-baby smiles at me first thing in the morning

spontaneous playground time just before supper 

the way the trees look in the autumn twilight

the way my Kilmo-girl mimics everything I do and say 

the simple truth of sufficient grace

the comforting smell of autumn baking

my Jared coming home, after putting in the hours at work for his girls

choosing to rest and to enjoy the busyness
