After a morning of dark clouds pouring thick drops of rain down, complete with rolling thunder and hundreds of flashes of lighting nearby, we were thrilled for the sun warming our windowsills again this afternoon. The sweet after-rain smell is drifting in with the faint breeze through the open windows. The girls are peeking through the screens, trying to find the birds tweeting in the trees across the street, whispering and giggling to each other.
I realize today, as I do most days, how grateful I am for a wonderful family and an amazing father. He will forever be “Daddy” to me, no matter how old either of us is. He encouraged me, taught me, cheered me on and helped me through so many things.
I’m also blessed to be married to an incredible man who is an extraordinary father to our sweet little girls. His love and devotion is always obvious, even when he can’t be close every single day.
I am so thankful for all the wonderful things in my life right now and I’m looking forward to the new adventure we’ll be taking in the months to come.
