In the midst of a busy schedule, you always manage to find everyday ways to confirm the once-in-a-lifetime promise we made. Last night, you included our daughter in your “Let’s-surprise-mommy” breakfast plans. In your typical way, you plan and prepare. Travel mugs set out on the counter, blue Equal packets perched neatly in each lid.
Today, you woke well before you needed to. Alone at the table, in a quiet house we sat and enjoyed eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits…homemade…heart-shaped biscuits. For you, for us – I am eternally grateful.
