Gratitude

Today I am so grateful.

I am grateful that plumber shots of my two year-old never get old.



I am grateful for badly taken pictures of lazy cats.



I am grateful for a teenager who still calls me Mama and lets me hold her hand sometimes.




I am grateful that a rescue kitten made my daughter happier on her birthday than an iPod could have.


I am grateful for six year old-boys who turn around in their chairs and pretend to be embarrased when I cry at kindergarten graduation.



I am grateful for a stolen moment together at a pool with my entire family.




Thank you, universe.

I'm totally gettin' this place you are in right now, and I understand it.
I'm grateful too, for all those little things we take for granted. I have to be. I've been reminded, and that's never a bad thing.

I forgot what I wanted to write after being promised lovely skin for leaving a comment. Do not be alarmed by the 48,000 comments you receive in the next two minutes....

I know I'm late here but seeing the fairness of your family and knowing your phobia about aging skin - I am assuming that all outdoor pics were taken AFTER liberal sunscreen application?

Jen,

Loved this post, and your guest post. You are generous of heart to share yourself this way, especially at this time for your family. A thousand thanks.

Your post is up at Hank and Willie, I am just back in town and getting organized, thank you!
