Ten minutes

One. Her diving into my bed head first, “Good morning mom!”

Two. “I don’t trust myself to crack the eggs. Can you just show me again?”

Three. Puppet shows with new friends just because.

Four. Him laughing, gut deep, unable to contain himself.

Five. Painting her hair pink because I can and it makes her so happy.

Six. “I made you a card because I love you so much”

Seven. Reading to them as they rest their heads on my shoulders, my fingers running through their hair.

Eight. Tickle wars that never end, but continue night after night. Our little tradition.

Nine. Laughing with and learning about some incredible ladies.

Ten. Slipping into fresh washed bedding and staring at the flames while listening to the rain pound down outside.

It was a good day.

About Shannon Joy

I am a single mama with two incredible munchkins. I confuse most people and the deeper you delve into the rabbit hole, the more lost you will become. I play a lot, work a lot, learn a lot, volunteer a lot and tend to do a lot... I love my life. The past few years have been an incredible journey, full of ups and downs. Thankfully, I have made the choice to see challenges as opportunities and it makes me so much stronger than I ever thought possible. I love to write and paint and feel that being creative is my God-given talent. I am so excited to share my life and experiences with you. Although I am a diamond in the rough, I known that I am being chiseled and hewn by experiences and grace and perseverance. I love comments and feedback, so please send a little love when you can. I will always try to respond personally and in a timely fashion.
