Today has been a great day. Nothing exceptional has happened, but my heart feels swollen with gratitude for the ordinary, wonderful things that make life sweet.
We went to the park this morning and I watched my boys dig like crazy in the sand and go down the slide again and again.
Jonah got to go to McDonalds with a friend, and is thrilled with his little toy.
Josh and Savannah surprised me by cleaning the house while I ran an errand.
Caleb was worried about hurting my feelings by not spending enough time at home.
It POURED this afternoon, and the kids all ran and danced and sang in the rain.
I listened to a talk by President Monson, and felt my heart grow a little softer and a little bigger.
We celebrated Josh’s birthday, and he couldn’t be happier with his little gifts. Nerf darts, a combination lock, an origami set, some Fuzzoodles, and a game. Best of all, he’s sharing with everyone.
Life is sweet.
