In an attempt to bottle that lovely autumn afternoon, I wrote the following... (Maybe I could bottle it and sell it?? Or save it for February?!)
It's currently sunny and 61 degrees. The windows are open, keeping me cool while Rowan keeps me snuggly and warm. The air smells like my just-out-of-the-oven granola bars and George is also peacefully sleeping. Extra peace envelops the day because the shopping is done, the chores are behind us and the weekend is ahead. We have no where to be for the rest of the day... And I suddenly feel unbelievably grateful. Grateful for my family, our home, maternity leave, a good book to read, and for Jesus, who gave it all to us.
