Simple Things

The simplest things bring such pleasure:

Playing 500 Rummy with the whole family last night
Waking up with my husband this morning and seeing our two littles sprawled across the bed between us
Enjoying a quiet cup of coffee with my husband before the rest of the house awoke
Getting to make my husband breakfast before he left for work
Seeing the sun shining through my windows
… 
Actually having my checkbook balance
Boiling off sap on my living room wood stove to make maple syrup
Dreaming and planning with my husband
Watching the littles share secrets under the desk
