I have to give credit to Shrike for reminding me of this one.
A day or two ago, Peeper opened the fridge (and freezer – when did she get tall enough to do that?!) and said something about how we have no room in there, or it’s all full-up, or it’s a big mess, or something.
To which Shrike replied, “Yes. Aren’t we lucky that we have all that food to eat.”
Yes, we are, and thank you, Sweetheart, for that reminder.
There’s nothing I would rather be doing than being Ellie’s Mama, and I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to do that full time for more than four years, and almost full time since then. We may struggle at times, and we often worry about our finances, and we can’t afford to buy every little thing we want, but we do have everything we need, much of it in abundance.
