A Grateful Glimpse

It was such a gorgeous afternoon that the kids and I decided to sit out on the front porch and eat our dinner while we waited for Tony to get home from work. The big kids were riding their scooter and drawing on the driveway when Josh walked up to me and handed me this.


And then promptly reached for a new one. Because as we all know, the first bite of donut is the only good bite. And mommies will always be there to eat what's left over so that their children can have the best part. And for just a brief moment holding that donut with the mouse bite out of it, bathed in the sunshine of early evening, I was reminded of what it truly means to be a mother. And I am grateful for the glimpse.
