I am sitting on my porch swing.Behind me I hear the soothing trickle of water from the fountain. I hauled it out of my tool shed this week and set it up. Not only is the ambiance of water pleasant, it also serves as a water bowl for our dog when necessary.
Behind me I hear the cadence of children's voices.The girls ate on the trampoline and the boys are at the patio table.The girls high and lilting, while the boys lower voices and raucous laughter sifting through, each decibel seems to say to me how quickly they grow and change from boys to young men.
The horses over by the barn are enjoying the breeze that is blowing through the gate. I watch the tail swish lazily as if it is keeping time to the languid moments.
I am here in the sunshine, my husband prefers the shade. we have always shared amicable differences and that's okay.
I am grateful for Sunday's that bring a break to regular routine, for sweet friends my children have to play with....for barbecues and watermelon and voices all around me, while I close my eyes, my heart sees the beauty....
I wrote this in my mind while I was sitting here yesterday, not wanting to move......
now it is Monday- time to move....full
laundry hampers, and much else waits
