Do you ever stop, really take in the moment and realize how stinkin' happy you are? I hope you do.

It's been a hard year. It started out so full of hope and excitment. Things don't always workout the way we planned. It's not always is to remember how happy you truly are when there are so many reminders of what you don't have around you.

I took it in last night and I am so glad I did.

I sat on the front stoop enjoying the warmth that finally came from a sun that decided to show it face. The bright rays lisfting my sould and warming my heart.

I saw my kids race around our little path. The big one on a bike, the little one chassing behind.

I breathed deeply in the scent of liliac on the cusp of being in full bloom.

I enjoyed just being.

We took our chances with the storm clouds and we walked. Little feet ran.

 Treasures were collected.

Time was spent together, souring, blowing, being.

The night ended in piles of fits and giggles. A game of tag ending in pile on pop.

Little bodies are bundled into bed, chores our done we find outself back on that front porch. Watching the pink clouds moving quickly through the sky. Realizing every moement is a gift if we just take the time to open it and relish what's inside.

It's funny how a little sunshine can shed light on us inside and out.
