If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever. Winnie the Pooh

It's Never Just Any Old Day

When the rain is blowin' in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love.

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong.

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawlin' down the avenue
No, there's nothin' that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love.

Though storms are raging on the rollin' sea
And on the highway of regrets
Though winds of change are throwing wild and free
You ain't seen nothin' like me yet.

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love.
(To Make you Feel My Love, Bob Dylan)

The other day I listened to Mick McAuley's version of Make you Feel My Love.  Music does wonders for my soul.  It picked me up out of some sorrow I had been feeling and reminded me to be thankful: for all the wonderful, beautiful, amazing things that happen on a seemingly normal day.  Here are some of those moments captured:

 We cuddle every, single, day.  Thinking of the day this will stop, makes my heart ache a bit.

   Being silly with Baby.  The human body amazes me.

                       A Father who takes his daughter to school every day.  She'll have this memory and know she's always been cherished by him.

        My sweet Madeline who sometimes gets 'lost' in the middle and reminds me: I'm here, be with me.

 A Boy-Child who notices pretty girls.

                   Over 7 years of marriage and I still try to look pretty for my man.  I hope that's the case 20 years from now.

A princess who turns heads.

When you realize taking a moment to stop for snow cones makes someone's day, you want do do it more often.

A morning at the zoo.  My heart broke a little this day.  "I want to sit by myself on the train."

Dancing days.

My Costco lunch date.  That face.  I couldn't have designed it better than He did.

First day of preschool at 3 years old and as I drove away that day I knew they would be ok. Because they have each other.

Playing dressup:  I love her confident, sassy attitude.

I came home from a run and asked for a kiss, she plugged her little button nose.  I love showing my children that mommy enjoys running.  They know mama is a runner.

Best Friends.

I cried.  I laughed. My 'baby' is so big and bright.

The Boy I never knew I needed.  So proud of his muscles.

Grateful for a wonderful teacher.

Three.  My  hands are not full, but my heart is.

Seeing Baby never, ever gets old.  One of my favorite things in life is feeling Life within me.

Sometimes I see myself in Claire.  The little Teacher.
Oh, my unique Claire. Don't ever change.

Kissy time with my Mads-Mama.  She is going to be an amazing woman.

On my birthday:  he gets me. Just so.

"Baby in MY tummy."  Oh Max, I will hold this image in my heart forever.

 So thankful I was gifted with twins.

Back to School Night and I opened her journal to find this gem.  My heart couldn't have been more joyful.

They truly miss their hard-working Daddy.
      Daddy's birthday:  Silly Daddy. Silly Max.

Out for an evening run:  Beautiful views and a happy running mama.

And those who were seen dancing, were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music. ~Nietzsche
