They don't know it yet...
But I do.
The greatest gift we will ever give them,
is the one they have already received.
And as we conquer this Spring Break of 2013 we are filling our days with moments of adventure...but very ordinary adventure, for the most part. A trip to Grandmas, an indoor park, lunch with dad, babysitting the neighbor's hamster...
a play date was attempted, but no connection has been made.
And this mama knows, that is okay.
Because just now I looked out and they were sitting side by side on the front porch, scooters at their feet, sun shining, cheeks exploding from smiles. Happy. Together. Enjoying their gift.
