{May 7, 2013}   End of the day…

My princess is in bed, exhausted from the days activities. My older daughter is sprawled across the couch, watching one of the many reality shows she likes. My son in enjoying a day off, waiting for his girlfriend to come over and watch a movie.

I am sitting outside, enjoying the cool air on my skin, watching the sunset, and for once enjoying the birdsong, instead of plotting their death for pooping all over my deck.

At this moment, I am content. Fatigued from playing and shopping and planting. (Notice I didn’t say cleaning. As if.)

At this moment, I love myself. I realize how hard I’ve worked to get here. I’m patting myself on the back for all of my accomplishments, my courage, my ability to laugh, when things are bad. My capacity for love.

At this moment, I’m focusing on now, and I’ve decided its a pretty good place to be.
