Mmm..it's early and dark and quiet in the house. All the children and the husband are still asleep. The cat is purring at my feet. The coffee is hot and made with french vanilla creamer just the way I like it.
I think the still of the morning, the calm before the storm of the day...that's the best time to realize just how lucky we are. I have a starring role in this family of ours and while it has had it's ups and downs, I wouldn't trade it for the world.
