This Week’s Simple Joys

gratitudeThere were several small joys this week. Joys that I took the time to notice and appreciate. Things that might otherwise have slipped through the cracks, going unnoticed, on weeks when I wasn’t paying attention.

But I did pay attention.

And here are some reasons that I’m glad that I did:

  • A short early morning run for the first time in weeks.
  • A snow day with my two special girls.
  • Make up sex.
  • An absolute perfect bowl of oatmeal.
  • Feeling, without a doubt, how very loved that I am.
  • A dinnertime picnic on the kitchen floor.
  • The sound of the snow crunching under my feet on a walk to work.
  • Reaching out in the dark and feeling CBG beside me.
  • Bright winter sunlight bouncing off the brilliantly fresh snow.
  • Falling even more in love.
  • A heart-to-heart with my best friend.
  • Shoveling with my daughter and breathing in the cold freshness of winter.
  • Family dessert night.
  • Feeling the boundaries of my love being tested and realizing that it runs deeper than I ever thought possible.
  • Loving, loving, loving.
