My girls are here this week! We haven’t been together since last summer and, let me tell you, the reunion is so, so sweet. It’s tough to pick just five favourites but I’ll give it a whirl.
Hugs. From those first hugs when they arrived, to hugs in random moments throughout the day, holding my girls in my arms again is simply priceless.
Words. We’re a wordy bunch who love to debate whether or not it’s appropriate to start a sentence with a preposition, play word games, and discuss subtle nuances in words and the challenge of choosing precisely the right one to describe something.
Food. I take advantage of having the girls here to stock the pantry with special things and to cook and serve other treat-like things. Nourishment for our bodies while being together nourishes our souls.
Smiles and laughter. I catch myself just looking at these smiling faces I love so much and my heart overflows. When we curl up under blankets to watch a movie, snacking on potato chips and ice cream, making random comments and laughing, I steal glances at my loves snuggled together and think there’s nowhere I would rather be.
Hugs. Did I mention hugs?
