Join us for a month of writing!
Sunday started off with a quick click of the 'snooze' button. Then dragging my feet back to bed. No need to rush and get up. We had plenty of time before church.
I savor the weekends when I don't have to rush to get up. Rush to get ready. Or rush to wake up my precious sleeping angels. I snuggled back under the covers and closed my eyes. Temporarily.
Within only a couple minutes, I heard voices. My twin four and a half year old daughters awake and talking. I closed my eyes and just listened. Smiling.
"Let's read this one."
"Oh! Ok. I like that one."
"The unicorn wished of a little girl." Page turn.
"And then ..." More reading of the pictures. Page turn.
"And then the other unicorns laughed at the sparkly unicorn ... " Page turn.
"And then ..." More retelling of the book we read before bed last night. Page turn.
"The girl dreamed of the unicorn too and their wishes came true. The end." Book closed.
"What should we read next? Can we read this one?"
These conversations will never grow old. I sat up in bed and listened to more in delight.
And then I had to capture this moment in a photograph too.
