{birthday = gratitude}

i woke up at 5am.
i always do.
i love those moments of stillness that fall across my home before the hustle and bustle of the day begins.
she sees the light on and calls for me.
she tells me about her dream....all the details. i secretly love them. every. single. detail.
she wants to be with me.
we have snuggle time on the couch while the boys sleep the morning away.
i bask in the goodness of this life.
another year.
another year with them. all of them.
those that mean so much to me.
there are too many to count.
i am loved.
therefore i love.

1. this guy...he hung the moon ya know?

2. then there are these little gems.  so sweet i could just eat them up! every day they challenge me  and show me how to live life to the fullest. enjoying every moment. embracing every giggle. playing. loving. laughing. creating. being what he made them to be.

3. then there are those people that i know fell straight from heaven to take this journey called life with me.

4. of course i couldn't do without the wisdom of these people.
