so much more.

Today was one of those days.

No, not one of those days.

The other kind.

The kind that make me stop,  and look, and think “if this all there is, I’m okay with that.”

My world just felt filled up with love today. Not for any particular reason at all. Although I can’t deny that the cold white wine in my hand at the end of a long hot day may have had something to do with it. But as I watched my two kiddos playing crossing guard out in the street – one on a bike, one with whistle in hand – and the neighbors started arriving home from work and a pickup round of batting practice broke out and an old friend sat down to chat on my porch stoop, I felt it. That little teeny slice of heaven on earth. That slice that is chock full of gratitude and goodness and a two year old’s gummy grin.

Of course, the best news is that this isn’t all there is. Even in the most wonderful moments there’s so, so much more. I’m fully convinced that there’s so much more waiting for us.

Which makes it a perfect time to share this photo that’s been saved in this blog queue for months now. My sweet Marley Rose on the occasion of her baptism.

Marley Rose – our goddaughter. Daughter of dear friends, child of God. Unbelievably precious, undeniably loved and absolutely blessed.

Marley Rose, may you always know that beyond the goodness this life has to offer there is oh so much more.

I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for newbies. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
