Because it was beautiful outside. Because my car said it was 70 degrees. Because I took my kids to the zoo. Because we got to see the penguins (my favorite) and the hippos (my daughter’s favorite) and the bears (my son’t favorite). Because I have windows open in my home. Because I know it is going to get colder again tomorrow. Because Cooper and Delaney started the day off PLAYING together. Because both kiddos ate lunch. Because I can hear Delaney reading to herself in the family room. Because everyone took a nap. Because I had just a little free time to talk to two of my favorite friends. Because dinner will be easy since Daddy is out of town..so, no big meal to prepare. Because I think my cold is finally going away. Because I have received so many wonderful comments on my blog in the past few days (thank you ULTMATE BLOG PARTY! and the moms who have joined in) Because I am blessed to have the chance to write. Because we are about to go back outside to play!
It all seems to very ordinary….but, to me, it is Extraordinary and I am grateful.
