Alive At Your Door

Yesterday I took two kids to the dentist, three to the mall to have eye glasses repaired, and four to Target after school.

It rained most of the day and the hardest, of course, when all five of us sloshed through the Target parking lot. All of us soaked. And water leaked into my shoes. And Gray's.

And I felt the cold rain on my arms and heard the sounds
of our rushing and breathed the smell of humid inside the car. Things weren't so out of focus. And I could taste being alive.

Noah made an excellent selection from the treasure box.

  4. I love this! What a busy day, bringing a sweet reminder that life is FULL, in a very good way.

    I sloshed through the Target parking lot the other day too. Then I realized I was wearing my slippers! True story. :)

  5. I am laughing so hard at Noah. I left my umbrella at Target, I should have told you so you could have gotten it and used it to keep dry.

  10. Sometimes it's nice to get rained on. I think moms should get to pick from a treasure chest too. It could have Starbucks and Sephora gift cards in it. Hmm, maybe I should have been a dentist. The MOST POPULAR DENTIST EVER!!!
