A cloudy day. The house is quiet. Son is at preschool, Husband is busy, and the house is mostly clean. Daughter is awake and I have just put her on our bed. For once, I have nothing to do but hang out with her.

I lie down beside her and say, “Hi cutie.” She looks at me and her face bursts into a sunshiney smile that lights up the whole room. I’m so in love. I talk and sing to her. She talks to me too and twenty minutes fly by. When it’s time to change her diaper, nurse her, get lunch ready for us all, I feel rested, even though I haven’t slept.

What are you grateful for today?
