God, please slow us down and let us drink in Your Presence the moments with one another. These little "treats" continue to be such a blessing to my life as a mother. What joy to be in our home and to see such happiness in the children, knowing they get to have hot chocolate AND patriotic marshmallows! Thank you, Jesus, for these joys. I hope more parents can see just how extraordinary the ordinary is. The world could be transformed by the joy carried by way of the family--husband and wife and the fruits of their married love. "The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest."- St. Thomas More 

little moments together

...just a few moments after Mass before family pictures at home with Sweet Yvey. There was once a girl named Lottie....How much we love you, sweet Lott-Claude! Your silent-pelican-mouth trademark, your beautiful double-dimples, and your "Ma!" are all adorable. Each one of you is a gift. Plain AND simple.
