i've come to realize that the simple things in life are the most important things. and that things really are just things. and that memories are what truly fills our hearts. oh sure, so does a great chicken salad sandwich. especially if you have someone to share it with. but oh those memories. they are so special.
i'm trying to remember that now. right now. to savor what's going on around me. helping my daughter wrap her presents. sharing lunch with both the kids since they stopped by at the same time today. laughing at each other. wearing my bathrobe all day. making beef vegetable soup for the first time. from scratch.
yep. that's what sustains me.
