Had a happy day.
Got to go on a "Giggle Walk" with my favoritestest sister in the whole world.
Was informed by Soren that he had a good life-- good family, good friends. He even said that he loved his brother Liam "so much." (!!!)
Went to the library with Liam, who had a funny conversation with another little kid his age. It went like this:
Kid: "Who are you?"
Liam: "No, Yeeyum."
Kid: "Then who are you?"
Took a nap.
Read, read, read, read, read to the kids. Learned about the Galapagos islands.
Visited some friends.
Cooked dinner while listening to little kid music.
Watched the children dance dramatically to Beethoven's 5th. (Liam put on a particularly charming performance.)
Life is sometimes hard, so I am sure thankful for days like these. I, like Soren, am grateful for family and friends. I am particularly grateful for the gift of motherhood. I love those precious little boys so much it makes my heart squeeze.
