The way the Girl sings her bed time prayers now in imitation of Gregorian chants.
Bouncing blond curls.
Little's china doll lashes.
Funny shows to laugh at while I sit and quilt.
Baby kicks in my ribs.
Long, late night talks with our big girl.
Lemonade, especially when we all make some together.
When Aaron smiles.
Long toddler legs sticking out under shorts.
The smell of a wood fire.
When family is together.
Being able to laugh at things that are irritating but can't be controlled. Like toddlers who stay awake all night.
Phone calls with distant friends.
Hair cuts at home with people gathered around talking and laughing.
Aaron teaching the Boy for the first time how to shoot a BB gun at a target.
The way he read the whole manual in the car to make sure he learned everything.
The way he handed it to me saying, "This part is a message for parents mom, so you should probably read that so you know what it says."
My FIL laying his hands on the belly that finally begins to look pregnant and blessing this baby.
The gratitude community is here.
