I woke up Sunday morning with the sun shining into my room.
It made my heart so happy.
You know things have been bad when I was welcoming the wind and snow.
No inversion!! YAY!!
Our family had breakfast.. and just enjoyed the light and seeing the blue sky.
We went to church.. and listened to many good and inspiring messages.
After lunch.. I got a warm blanket.. turned the heater up and laid down on the warm vent to relax.
Not long after.... Tenney joined me.
I was surprised to see that she left the warm vent in her room to come and share with me.
We had a good talk about friendships.
I sat and watched her.
Really looked at her.
She is growing up and maturing before my eyes.
She looked beautiful.
I pulled out my phone and tried to snap some pictures.. but only was able to get one.. before she was too embarrassed and started posing for the camera.
Then... Christian came in by us.. and started to play the piano.
Not long afterwards... Mary and the Cats joined us too.
At first... I thought.. there is no place for me to be alone.. is there?
~ And almost before the thought had even left me.. I felt an overwhelming desire that I should be grateful that my children WANT to be near me.
That they want to gather wherever I am -- whether it's to snuggle on the heater... just to be in the same room... or after they see me get my camera out.. and they want me to take 101 pictures of them with the cats.
Because according to Tenney....you can never have too many pictures with the Cats.
I hope my children and I will always want to be close to me.
One of my greatest desires.
Today I am Grateful for:
The sun this morning!
Many good things to look forward to this week
Energy to do what I need to today
Downton Abbey Season 3 is available to purchase tomorrow.
I hope I can get it.
While I still love Downton.. Season 3 is my least favorite so far.
And last night's episode.. was no surprise to me.. because it was spoiled already.
Some of the lamest lines were in last nights episode.
I think the only character 2 people that I am not bugged with today is Mrs. Crawley and Lady Grantham ( Violet ).
