Some moments I have a blinding realization of all the goodness in my life.
Olivia is tucked into her antique iron bed (my grandmother's) snuggled under a quilt made by my husband's great grandmother when he was a baby. Bedtime stories have been read, prayers said, and kisses liberally applied.
Sadie~Rose is sleeping soundly in her little bed beside mine. Covered in a blanket made by a darling friend. Her soft sighs and the sound of her sucking on her pacifier can be heard.
And when I finish this, I get to go crawl into bed beside my big strong husband. Snuggle up against his warm back and wrap my arm around him, resting my hand on his heart where I can feel the steady bump of a heartbeat. I'll kiss his shoulder and then rest my cheek on it while I slowly work through the day's events and prepare (mentally) for the next. And then I'll drift off to sleep surrounded by the ones I love. Ready to wake up on a beautiful Saturday morning to pancakes and eggs, garage sale, and church. Spending time with these three people that make my life so worth while.
I am blessed ladies. And I'm thankful.
Have a wonderful weekend!
