I’ve always dreamed of having a house full of kids laughing, playing and running around.
And this last Saturday, I got a tiny little glimpse of that dream and it was so heavenly!
You see, we were watching a sweet little girl (Bubbers’ first kiss) and it was a gloriously beautiful day.
So I suggested we take the kids out back and enjoy the sunshine.
Charming helped me get their shoes on and we went out to the backyard.
Then I suddenly remembered I’d just bought Bubbers some yard toys (early birthday presents–thank you, Craigslist!).
So I asked Charming to get them out of the back garage, along with some bouncy balls we’d forgotten about.
I looked up and saw this.
And my mother heart filled to the brim and overflowed with happiness to see beautiful children playing in my backyard!
(And I can’t tell you how much I wished I could fit down that slide, too!!!)
I smiled the biggest smile and right then I knew exactly what heaven felt like.
Holy smokes, now I’m gettin’ all teary-eyed on myself! :)
