This morning as I was driving the boys to school the weatherman on the radio described the day as "hazy-sunshine." It's the perfect winter day. It's cold, of course. What more can you expect in December, but as far as winter days go, this is the perfect type.
Most of my days lately have been filled entirely with business. Getting ready for Christmas, my own checklists, the kids, the house, never feels like there's a moment to stop and take it all in.
I literally felt you say to me this morning as I was rushing to get ready, "Slow down." It was so distinct, and so clear.
I needed that. Thank you.
I'm taking in every single moment of this day. There are so many details I don't want to forget. Like the hazy sunshine. Like the boys talking about all the tractors and diggers in our neighborhood as we drove by. Like the steam and smoke rising off the cars in the cold morning air. Like the look on the boys' faces when they woke up. Like the smiles they can't fight when we talked about things that excited them. Like their sweet chocolate milk mustaches.
Like what it feels like to know that you are with me, always. Today more than ever I feel that. Thank you for slowing me down, and reminding me to take in every detail of everyday.
Love you forever,
