Things That Make Me Smile

  • Having a water gun fight with my family, my Nana included
    (You gotta watch her; she’s vicious!)
  • Blackberry cobbler made with fresh, hand-picked berries
  • Using my Mama Jo’s recipe for said cobbler
  • Baby-wearing daddies who go on nature/photo walks
  • Holding little babies that aren’t mine (and I can give back when they cry)
  • Holding not-so-little babies that are mine, even when (especially when?) they cry
  • Sunlight shining on spider webs
  • Catching lightning bugs with the kidlets
  • Realizing we’ve checked off half of the things on our Summer Bucket List
  • Homemade Pudding Pops and silly kids who eat them
  • The things my kids say
  • Realizing what once seemed bad was actually good
  • Outfits with matching hairbows
  •  Angry Birds bandaids
  • Hearing “eye…oooo” and knowing it means “I love you”
  • Elbow dimples (on her, not me)

    Seeing all the pictures of you and your family, reading your thoughts you have worded so beautifully, watching my parents smile and giggle when they are around the kids, listening to you and Richard sing, watching Pops “pick on” the kids, watching sunrises and sunsets, watching clouds, watching tomato plants grow, hearing your children pray and sing………just to name a few things that make me smile!!!!

    Me too. Except the cobbler…unless you’re making it…because we know what happens when I try…
