I'm thankful for friends. And for friends for my kids. And for friends that share generously. And for friends that are happy to get together on last-minute impulse.
I'm happy for summer and laid-back routines. And for warm swimming pools, sun-kissed bodies, and loud laughs. And for later bedtimes and later wake-up times. And for watermelon slices and ice cream cones.
I'm glad for simple pleasures. And for contagious giggles. And for thrill-seeking little boys. And for hours of fun outside.
I'm content. And not just because I have nice friends. And not just because my kids have had a happy-filled summer so far. I'm content because I have been given - in greatly undeserved amounts- a full life in family and in friends.
