Waking not so early to gentle quiet and warm hugs.
Jamie is home!
The sweetlings begin to chirp and chatter joyfully
now that we are awake.
School is fun --shiny with sparkles-- with Jamie here
to join in the fun.
Peaceful "just being" occupies the rest of our afternoon:
playing, reading, enjoying one another.
Dipping outside, shivering and laughing,
hurrying back inside to warm.
Afternoon waning, evening will come
and there's more time for us.
More time! Maybe a movie all five together,
or maybe a project or game?
Cuddles and sleepy time hugs, pillows and blankets and prayers...
and then sweet stealth preparations for another day.
What better gift than a day at home, all together?
Just so thankful to be in this place ♥
