Feeling a bit under the weather, I lay on the couch. She is playing with her toys; he is playing a video game on the computer. I drift off to sleep. She comes up to me and explains the hair on her ponies and how she is arranging it. I close my eyes again. He points me to a part of the game he is working on and I look up to watch. And I close my eyes again--warm and happy at the life and family around me.
(It did also help that we had a snow plow do most of our hard labor!!)
(Which is good, cuz oiur snowblower is broken and Chewy has Golfer's Elbow.)
Later, we have oreos and hot chocolate and watch a movie.
