Day 279: Meternity

That's not a misspelling.  That's another one of my new words.  Maternal + Eternity.  I'm not really sure why, I just didn't really know what to title taday's post.

Today was another good day.  I'm learning to keep my emotions in check and then to just roll with it and move on when things get yucky.  I'm pleased with the control I had today.

But my Joyful Moment wasn't related to that.

I can't really describe what this does to me internally.  But I do know without a doubt that on a future day, this photo will make me cry.  It has captured so much of the preciousness that is my Baby B.  His mile-long eye lashes (better seen when this photo is enlarged), his fuzzy head, the furrowed brow as he's concentrating on the little mouse that fell out of his pocket, and those sweet sweet cheeks.  Oh oh oh.  I adore him.

Getting this and about a dozen others of my sweetie, plus a bunch of awesome family pics was totally today's Joyful Moment.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that capture the essence of one of the best things in your life.

This photo captures so much - what a treasure! (The photo and Baby B) :)

One of my former young women, now all grown up, and her husband and brother came to visit us for a couple of days. My goal at the start of the day was to set up a room for her brother to sleep in, which involved moving a whole lot of stuff from one room to the other and vice versa. And I did it! It's not completely done, but mostly done and that's what I needed. Visiting with sweet friends is bringing me lots and lots of joy. And so is settling in.
