Hiking in the woods with Widget, following paths where they lead; never once stopping to catch my breath
Taking Little Bear out for a bike (trike) ride as dusk begins to fall and the streetlights turn on
Writing late into the night, comparing policies, reading papers, churning letters into words
Smiling at my husband as we turn off our computers for the night; jobs well done
Inspiring young minds at preschool, them clutching planetary telescopes with chubby fingers
Two hours of skee ball and air hockey at the children’s arcade
Lunch out and Target, laden with summer shovels, buckets, cars, and noodles for the pool
Squirt guns sans water aiming and firing like high pitched blasters, because my kids don’t know guns
Shovels pressing into dirt that doesn’t yet know it should be springtime
Bikes and trikes; soccer balls and peals of laughter filling the air as the daddies and mommies next door come home from work
Playtime with neighbors and petting the poodle who lives down the block
Cuddles and laughter and cheese and cracker snack that I cut myself, with fingers that no longer peel
Cartoons and Daddy and snuggled and time for bath, my little ones
and how different these days are becoming from February, when I often could only write
Today, there is hope and love and little boy giggles. Thankfulness and praise. and confidence that I can have a good day again tomorrow.
I needed a smile tonight – thanks for giving me one a mile wide!

This post made me so happy.
You’re amazing. Your outlook on life is just fantastic.
Wonderful! Thanks for your sharing, and thanks for being so eloquent!
Wishing you knew how many faces have read this list and smiled at the screen, then walked away and hugged their littles a bit tighter and stared up at the stars for a while longer.
Wishing you many more wonderful days like today. And also? Spring is coming, spring is coming! Hoping for some lovely naturetime with your family, coming soon. (Gentle) hugs.
I’m thankful too.
Heaven on Earth, these days are.
So happy that the good days are really good…I hope you have millions more…..
Ordinary days. And yet extraordinary. 🙂 So glad you’re feeling better!
I have been doing this too lately. Making a mental list of all the small, normal things that happen that I’m so grateful for. Sometimes I challenge myself and start with A and try to get to Z listing things. Life really is precious.
