There was nothing particularly special about yesterday. We spent the day as a family. The dogs were walked, errands run, conversations, naps, outside play, yard work, dishes, laundry. Normal stuff. It was the kind of day that will be forgotten, but the general mood and feel of yesterday will be the happy times we look back on in the years to come.
This time with a three year old and an almost one year old. The summer
sunshine. Dinner on the back patio. Dogs playing in the yard. Girls
painting on the outdoor easel in their birthday suits. Playing in the
park. Talks about the future as we walk through our neighborhood. Making
eye contact with Eric as our girls charm us.
Feeling full of gratitude.
