:: A little girl who falls asleep on the floor cuddled next to her dog during an afternoon snowstorm.
:: The scent of balsam oil on my newly baptized baby's sweet head.
:: A house full of family and good food. Young cousins playing dolls and blocks and making pretend cupcakes for each other for hours on end.
:: Bathtime. (and naptime).
:: Hugs and kisses and reading and dancing.
:: A clean table, a lit candle, and a dinner all together.
:: Laughter and a half-dressed child running down the hall.
:: Her love of the animals and the freedom of being outdoors.
:: His fearlessly joyful nature.
:: The feeling of belonging - wholeness - oneness - contentment.
I want to forget all the rough spots, and remember these things instead.
