  • That sometimes, just being yourself can bless and encourage someone.
  • Cuddling up on the couch to read books together.
  • The Girl washing a pear for Little.
  • The obvious delight on Little's face when she says good morning to the Girl.
  • The Girl's sleep crumples hair standing on end.
  • Conversations with Aaron after a successful day.
  • Quiet time! When they are actually quiet.
  • Crickets chirping outside my window as I fall asleep.
  • Clouds and cool breezes.
  • Not enough dirty laundry for a full load.
  • A doll house on loan from a friend that has the girl's enthralled.
  • Sun showers and rainbows.
  • Long walks together when we're not in a hurry.
  • Picnics at the park.
  • Banana loaf.
  • Sisters in law who are fun to be with.

    Carrien. . . . this was the day after I lost my baby. We, too, celebrate Sukkot and had planned for a week of special times with friends. Needless to say, it didn't happen. I'm still sad about it all. :(
