Simple Appreciation…….

Each day offers us the gift of being a special occasion if we can simply learn that as well as giving, it is blessed to receive with grace and a grateful heart.

Some times it just hits me.

Maybe its the wind blowing in ALL our hair as we drive over the 312 bridge.

Maybe it is seeing Zeek CARRY all the kids to their beds…on his own.

Maybe it is the way Sheba loves to say close your eyes…then kiss my cheek.

Maybe it is Malachi saying “Mom..” then using his hands to spell out “I LOVE YOU” ….and wanting me to do the same back to him.

Maybe it is watching the ENTIRE SEASON of Project Runway with Shashamane.

Maybe it is the way Jason ALWAYS walks me to my car before work and opens the gate for me…even after at 3AM after work.

Lately I want to cry feeling like, “THIS is IT!”

I told Jay the other day that “This is the SWEET SPOT. All the kids are young.  No one has left the house.”

He laughed.

I didn’t.

I love it and NOW think that I TRULY appreciate this life.

I truly LOVE every minute.

Every argument.

Every laugh.

Every car ride.

I REALLY, REALLY LOVE this life!!!!
