Miles Run: O
Toe still says NO.
So I found other things to love…
I love that my 13-year-old still lines up her dolls and favorite animals
And reads Anna Karennina in bed
I love blackberries picked in summer mixed into muffins in winter. If we had a working oven I would love to actually cook them. seven more days until working oven…then maybe I’ll love lessons on patience.
I love blackberries in smoothies…and that it’s almost blackberry season again!
I love that Brynne was scared because she was the youngest on the team and had never played basketball before, but she still put herself out there. I love that she knows what brave is.
I love that the boy wants to be like his dad
I love that I have a book problem. I don’t love that we have a closet problem.
I love protective armor
And small creatures even though my mom says they’ll destroy my house
I love sweet sorry notes. It reminds me that I need to write one tonight.
I love walks in winter with strollers and babies, and I’m loving spring walks even more
I love crazy socks and knobby knees
And pets so real they talk
I love beans in mashed potatoes. Do you remember doing this? I hope you do.
After three looooong weeks, I love that the dishwasher is fixed. It required the man coming into the house and flicking the breaker. He didn’t even say, “duh.” I appreciate him keeping that thought to himself.
But my poor children. They’re just crying their eyes out, wishing they could go a few more weeks doing the dishes by hand. Shame, that.
