What a lovely, laid-back family Sunday.
Here are my 3 things to be grateful for today:
1. Music. More specifically, U2. We were on the way to my folks for lunch today and had ‘With or without you’ playing in the car. The kids went very quiet. I don’t know whether it was because they love Bono as much as I do (I’m hoping!), the way hubby and I were bopping our heads in unison or my absolutely dreadful singing. I love music and there is usually a radio or a CD playing in our house. Admittedly, it’s usually children’s music these days, but still. There are many, many memories and emotions linked to songs!
2. Afternoon naps. Nothing, I repeat, nothing is more special than a nap on a Sunday. Knowing I have an hour of peace and quiet and I promise myself that I’ll read my book, but when my head hits that cool pillow and I snuggle in I’m gone, until hubby comes to wake me up for his turn. At least today, during my turn to be awake, I could convince Daniel to cuddle on the couch and watch a movie so I could read my book with him nestled firmly under my arm. Bliss.
3. The absolute cuteness of our children. Sometimes when I look at them I feel like the wind is knocked from me by the overwhelming love I feel. I want to hold them and keep them and kiss them. I want to inhale the smell of them and remember it forever. I want to imprint their facial expressions and mannerisms and remember how much I love them so that I don’t disown them when they are teenagers one day and hate my guts. (And I probably hate theirs)
May everyone have a fantastic week!
