My Journey to Joy

Just sitting on the family room floor, still in pajamas, reading a book to my precious boy.  We smile, point at the pictures.  A cute puppy, a bunny, fall leaves.  Then the last line makes me come undone: “We both have so much to be thankful for.”  *

I kiss a dark, curly head of freshly-washed hair, and I can’t stop crying.  He’s still looking at pictures, and doesn’t know that Mommy is behind him, now praying: “Thank you, thank you, thank you, God.” 

So much to be thankful for…
