just because i can ...
i'm squeezing in an itty-bitty post late into the evening.
to update the (maybe?) seven of you out there that read these silly ramblings of mine ... on the very things that i can't help but love at this exact second in time ...
the dropping of a yittle-bankie amidst the carrying of my drooling little into her own bed ... which gave me the opportunity to bring her that little blankie and set it into her arms an hour or so later ... and moreso ... gave me a chance to gaze at her while she slept.
the later-than-i-would-have-allowed phone call from my biggest little ... telling me all about her night with grandma before settling into her bed at g-ma's house. and just how little she actually sounds still. mature. but still little. an important reminder that i needed desperately tonight. because even old souls can reside in little bodies. five years old ... is not that old.
homemade salsa. mexican relish to be exact ... served with a hint-of-lime chip ... made from fresh garden tomatoes that most likely won't last another day ... knowing that frost and possibly even snow may be on mother nature's to do list this evening.
having two amazingly beautiful wonderful girly-girls that immediately place their palms upon my ever-growing belly as soon as i mention that a certain little baby boy blue just kicked.
late night conversations with the love of my life. the i-love-yous that carry me through 'til he comes home. wishing that he were here to feel the kicks too. and maybe more thankful that he does get to come home tomorrow to do all of those things in person.
purring kitties that take every opportunity to jump upon my lap ... and sit quietly with me while i ponder the things in my life. forcing me to sit there for just a minute longer than i maybe would have, if they didn't.
days off from work. where i can sleep just a few minutes longer, enjoy a cup of coffee in a real mug, call my best(est) friend at ten in the morning, and watch my girly-girls interact and play ... in our home ... rather than in the backseat of the van rushing off to our morning locations.
that's so not everything ...
i just wanted to share a snippet.
and i would love to hear your loving snippets too ... what are you loving today?
