Is "heartful" a word? I don't think so, but it should be. Tonight we just hung out in the backyard. Bob and I watched our kids play in the playhouse, jump on the tramp, and torture the puppy. This evening will certainly go down in my personal history as a favorite. Sometimes it's just nuts to think these kids are here, and I am their mother. As Mother's Day approaches and Daughter's Day (a holiday created for me and by me) just passed, maybe I am more sensitive to these special moments. Knowing the pains of losing a child has made me so much more appreciative of what I do have, and I am keenly aware of how fragile (so cliche sounding) and short life can be. These small and spontaneous moments are to be treasured.
