hear the blessing

This afternoon has been wonderful. My boys are asleep. My dishwasher and washing machine are humming away. My floors are clean (this is rare, and will last for exactly 30 seconds after the kids wake up). Everything is quiet.

I sat on the big chair in my living room and looked around... seeing, hearing, and feeling that I am blessed.

Finger prints on windows, appliances, and furniture: Children live here.

Flowers on the table: My friend loves me.

Books everywhere: We are learning together.

Toys behind the couch: We have been playing hard.

Pictures and art on the walls: This is our story.

I know this feeling so well, and you described it perfectly.
