I have measured out my life with coffee spoons. ~T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
Today’s post is brought to you by coffee.
Sheldon has a case of croup. This has meant a sleepless night for everyone, which means I am functioning off of coffee fumes and will power. I love to sleep (0072). Time for a refocus.
“The Lord your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)
Let me count the endless gifts:
0073. blossoms on the trees with little honey bees buzzing about.
0074. My children are blessed with Grandparents and Great-Grandparents to love them. It’s so fun to watch my babies spend time with my Grandparents and parents.
0075. Boys who ask me at 8 a.m. if they can have a “handy bar” for breakfast.
0076. Babies who bury their face in any soft thing. You can see the contentment on his face, like he’s found his happy place. Who knew that happiness would be found on a sheepskin rug?
0077. Babies in big hats.
0078. Watching curling with my dad, and having no idea what is going on. I still haven’t googled it. It’s almost more exciting to have the mystery of “What is happening here?”
0079. Modern medicine that can soothe fussy sick babies.
0080. Watching guy movies with my husband. By “watching”, I mean hiding under a blanket for the scary parts and asking him to “tell me when it’s over”. For some reason, he still would rather watch a guy movie with me than with anyone else (or so I tell myself).
0081. Finding extra cash in my wallet. SCORE!
0082. Buying baby gifts for expectant friends. I could go crazy, especially when I find extra money in my wallet. Why are tiny socks so exciting? I don’t get excited over regular socks…
0083. Regular socks. Sometimes my feet get cold.
0084. Finding new recipes to try. Cooking is so much more exciting when you are trying something new. In my case, there is always a sense of danger when I experiment in the kitchen.
