I had one of those days that just had to be shared. I've had a few recently where my HP and I were fighting over the steering wheel of the bus and which direction to point it. But not today....
I got a bunch of stuff done yesterday that was weighing on my mind and keeping from being focused. (housework, bills)
Today I had all three of my kids over and my two grandsons for dinner. I marveled as they intermingled content and happy. Laughing enjoying each other, and life in general. I wached it so clearly. I was able to feel joy, and peace. Latrer as I took barb and the baby back home, I took my other grandson with me so he could see the puppies with Kay. On the way home we got to stop at a bus stop and see a boa constricter. Normally, this is not some thing I would stop and haul Kay and a todler out of the car to see. But not today. Today it was cool. Life to Hunter is like a bottomless toybox, full of suprises he's can't wait to see.
I was too busy raising my own kids, and getting drunk to set back and just enjoy them. The opportunity to do it with my grandkids and sober is more than I deserve, but i wouldn't trade it for the world.
