Every morning I sit on my couch facing this window and the sun shines through, every morning, casting shadows from the dogwood bush outside.
It's something so little, so simple, but I love it. It's like a gift.
I remember choosing those curtains (I've been meaning to replace them for a long time now)- they were supposed to be just temporary in a near-end pregnancy fit I was having before Ivy was born. I had to have new curtains. I drove my big belly and three small children all over town, even to one store three times because I kept exchanging for a different style. (I had ironed each set, too.)
Last night at dinner I was telling the kids all about my little business trip tonight to Chicago and what I'll be doing tomorrow. Gray wanted to know if I'll win a reward? Like a trophy?
Carter hoped my prize would be a treasure! Or a fortune! A fortune is worth more than anything else in the world.
Then they all decided that actually fortune cookies would be the most awesome prize of all
Little do they know that they are my treasure, my fortune. Every day.
[And now, how could we not watch this video together? Hugs!]
