Teaming up with Gypsy Mama again today for Five Minute Friday. Write for 5 minutes, no editing (yikes!), and then link back to her site. :) Have fun and join in!
As my mind slowly comes back from my dreams, I awaken to the sounds of those that I love. My husband breathing next to me, the soft coos of my baby, and the footsteps of his older brother coming down the stairs to greet us. As Joe snuggles in with daddy, I rise and make my way to get Max... and am greeted with a smile that is just for me. Mama. Mommy. Little hands reaching, ready to be held, to be cradled, to be loved....
Joe moves over to make way for us, and suddenly, morning has become a time of remembering what we are here for. What God has given to us. What a gift this life is! Although there are many things to do, we take a little extra time to just be.... Waking up to this. To life. With each other.
