Today has been filled with the entirely ordinary: reading together, lessons, hanging laundry on the line, a walk through our woods, a trip to the playground and books on hold at the library.
It was made entirely extra-ordinary by the additional hugs, the signs decorating the walls, the perfectly, piercingly, blue sky against the rusty tips of the trees, the (self-given) permission to do those small things I wanted to because it's my birthday, and the anticipation of having nothing to do with dinner except in the eating of it, the four of us together.
It's nothing special, and everything. Abundance for the taking.
