Oh What A Beautiful Morning...

He nibbled his banana, and I poured myself some coffee.

No frantic hurry this morning as I put on some comfy clothes over my PJs and we got into the car.

With the sunshine streaking the morning sky, we took the short drive to school.

I sang him the song that my dad sang to me to get me up during those school years long ago.

We sang my hubby's morning song.

We sang a bit of "My Favorite Things" and then some made-up songs about having a good day.

And as I watched his backpack bounce as he ran into school, I felt a surge of gratitude so overwhelming that I knew I would never be able to capture it in words.

Oh how the years go by...


  1. I'm so glad you know to treasure this because life goes on and there are lots of changes. Yesterday, we discovered that Z is taller than me now. I can't tell you how choked up that made me feel. My baby....

  2. Aww. I remember when he was smaller than LM. Each stage of their life has it's perfect beauty, but it's so hard to see it go so quickly.
