A Good Day 6::52

A good day is anyone when I wake up
when there is coffee to drink
morning quiet to pray, think, write

A good day is one when the sun is shinning
or the rain or snow is falling
when the temperature is warm or the temperature is cold

A good day is when a little voice calls from her room
"Good morning Momma! Can I come downstairs?"
when there are sweet gummy baby smiles & a baby head to nuzzle

A good day is when he leaves a morning note; sends an "I am at work safe" text; calls at lunchtime; comes home with a smile & open arms

A good day is one when I can't get out of my own way & Ree is moody & V doesn't want to be put down

A good day is when we have time for art & baking & reading
when we can get outside to explore & get fresh air

A good day is when the laundry piles up, the dishes go unwashed, the table is full of art creations, the living room has toys strewn about
but we are content & happy & creative

A good day is when the laundry is caught up, the dishes are clean, supper is made
and we are content & happy & creative

A good day is an afternoon of quiet rest with blankets & tea & cookies & candles & knitting & writing

A good day is full of work & play. Of family & love. Of happy moments & not so happy moments

A good day is when we all tumble into bed exhausted from the day's activities. Ready for sleep to refresh us so tomorrow we can do it all over again!


  1. I loved reading your good day and the love that is infused in each minute.

  2. What a great reflection of your days. It's wonderful that you are writing it all down so you can look back at it when the girls are older. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. this all sounds and looks like a very good day! love all the books :) and i, too, love it when the mister texts from work to say he's there, or he's thinking about me, or he's on his way home.
