I awoke this morning with the realization that I am leaving the day after tomorrow. I spent this morning enjoying my time with my Little Man. We had breakfast, played and read books. We took a long walk to meet Mamma after work at the preschool. It was a wonderful morning.
The walk down to the school was peaceful. There was the usual traffic noises and construction noises and airplanes, but it felt peaceful. Some of the leaves are changing colors and it feels like fall here.
Little Man was quiet while riding in his stroller. He was looking around, but the usual chatter between the two of us was not there. It didn’t matter though, I think we both knew that our times of just the two of us walking will end soon.
As I walked, I was reflecting on how quickly the past couple weeks have gone. I have loved my time with my daughter and son-in-law. They are great people. They have a comfortable home and have made me feel welcome and loved. They are still fun to watch together as they discover parenting in all its forms. It is a joy to be in their home.
My lesson for today is being grateful. I am grateful for family. I am grateful for Nana needing some more time and for her accommodating my being here. I am grateful for my time here with Little Man. It has been a refreshment for my soul and spirit. I will go home congested with a cold, but filled to the very top of my being with love.
Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your visit. DAF
