Is it wake-up time, Mama? A little voice in my doorway wonders. She is so rarely the first one up. Blueberry bagel, real blueberries, not the blueberry-flavored corn syrup bits, for breakfast in the early morning quiet. Sun pours in the window telling us it is going to be another nice day.
We snuggle for a few as she explores my face with her small fingers. I awake when a sweet boy proudly announces there is something on the table for me. He has made me my own bagel breakfast, just the way he likes it–dripping with butter and warm from the toaster. There are notes and pictures on the table and two excited little boys waiting to show me all they had done.
Sunday morning acoustic music, coffee, sun, quiet, resting my lovely bones, gardening, rhododendrons?, and always, always a content mama to be able to have such a life.
