(because I really need one today)
1. The sound of my son’s laughter. Especially when he jumps on top of Noah and yells, “WESSOH TIME!”
2. Listening to Liliana’s hour-long monologue about Mother Nature and how nature is her original home and about plants and animals and bees and how much she loves science and how daughters are smarter than mothers. This after our neighbour asked Liliana if she knew how many words she could speak in 20 seconds.
3. Having a great long laugh at work.
4. A good, hard rain.
5. Being outside. In the garden, specifically. Which I get to plant very soon. Finally.
