This morning before I got out of bed our sweet Princess walked in with my Daddy’s tray that she dug out of who knows where.
“Mama I’ve been paying attention to what you eat, and so I made you breakfast.”
Y’all. On an episode of a comedy show I was watching recently, the son used the “breakfast in bed” ploy to try to get his way with his Mama. Time after time. Once he brought in a bunch of bananas and a box of pop tarts. Another time the tray he carried in had a carton of eggs and a package of bacon on it.
Not my girl. She’s been watching. My crackers with No Nut Butter and pumpkin seeds. She even found one of the extra smoothies I had put in the freezer. And a spoon on a leftover fancy napkin from her sister’s birthday party last fall.
To be known. And loved. And thought to be worth the effort. A gift to be sure.
This sweet face in the sunshine. Both gifts. She follows me around and never seems to tire of finding me wherever I go. That’s love. And this is her sleepy face.
Aub and her Pirate sister playing and singing music on the back porch. Hearing that sweet voice and guitar filled my heart and soul, full to bustin’. I love these two girls. What they can do when they put their hearts and talents together is beautiful.
This smile. It usually means mischief is going on. And yet it still tickles me to see it. And when he laughs…..you just can’t help but laugh along, I don’t care who you are.
The grace of new beginnings and ever blooming friendships and the beauty of this time of year all overwhelmed me today. And made my heart glad.
My Mama started many a day off reminding me, “This is the day that the Lord hath made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Yes ma’am. Today was such a day of rejoicing.
Love and rejoicing to all.
