There are certain times throughout the day and week that I take a look around me and sigh. It’s a good sigh. It’s a good sigh accompanied by a smile and a heart that feels as though it’s about to burst. It’s an overwhelming feeling and I’m sure if you looked at me during this moment I would look 100% content.
Amelia is a cuddle-bug. She’s in love with her soother, blankie, and mommy. There are times where she just wants to sit all snuggled up with those three things. She’ll grab mommy with one hand and her blankie with the other and not let go. Cue the sigh.
Rhys says the funniest and cutest things in the world. Yesterday morning he told James to go and fight the robots while James was walking out the door. A few days ago he told Amelia that she was so precious and gave her a kiss on the forehead. Cue the sigh.
One of my favorite things to do with James is to sit on our couch in our own home (just the two of us) with a cup of coffee. Sometimes we talk, sometimes we read, sometimes we rant, and sometimes we’re totally quiet. I’ll look at him and I cant picture anyone better for me. Cue the sigh.
My children and husband are wonderful all on their own because all three are amazing people and are perfect for my life. However, I find that I get most of my sighs when all four of us are all together. We all compliment each other so well. Granted there are tons of frustrating times and times where I need to be by myself but I love when we are a family spending time together. There’s something about James and I sitting down with the kids on our laps and just being a family. Awe. Cue the sigh.
I was jolted from a deep sleep last night. I have no idea what I was dreaming about but I do remember saying something to a huge group of people as my mind was grasping for a thread of reality. As I lay still for a moment I went over and over the comment to the crowd. It was as though I was revealing some very shocking and absurd news. The audience was gasping and looking frantically at each other. It was the type of reaction that one would expect after giving a history altering announcement. After thinking about my comment to the crowd I pulled the covers tight over me and smiled. I don’t know the extent of what goes on in my mind while I’m sleeping…but it’s weird. It’s probably good that I don’t know.
“Ladies and Gentlemen” I said to the crowd with a lengthy pause for added effect, “It turns out He…is a Picasso!”
