It's a brilliant, cool day. Fall is so welcome! The breeze is dancing in the trees outside, and there is a hint of rain to come. The sweetlings are joyfully working with their subjects, pausing to giggle at the story Poppy (my dad) is reading to Ila in the living room (he makes the chicken sound effects, and we all are delighted). Lunch is simmering on the stove. We will stop to share a meal together in a little while. The talk and laughter will feed us just as much or more than the food.
I am here at my desk, taking a pause to record this moment
with such a grateful heart. It is priceless ♥
