Happy Day

Yesterday was a good day. No worries about eye drops, eye pressure, or the contact lens that my four month old will start wearing next week. No stressing out about eye patches or glasses, no freaking out about swelling and redness in Amelia's eye, no tears (from me or Amelia) when she got her four eye medications.

Instead, it was a day filled with sunshine, spent playing outside from lunchtime until bedtime. Bikes, scooters, Barbie Jeeps. Bubbles, chalk, cartwheels. Honeysuckle and wild flowers, picked by my biggest girl and placed carefully in the vase she made me for Mother's Day. And lots and lots of giggles.

It was one of those days when everything feels right with the world. Where you find yourself taking mental pictures instead of digital ones. Where you breathe in the life of your children and feel, in that moment, more blessed than you've ever felt before.

Life is good. Not always easy, but so, so good.

I love this; it made me feel all warm and fuzzy because I know just what you mean. EVERY day should be like this.
