I woke up this morning and was treated first thing to a snuggle with my little girl.
I got in a cold weather run that required multiple layers of clothes and wind that brought tears to my eyes. Followed it up with a bike ride with my boy filled with laughter, struggles and successes. As we cooked lunch together and enjoyed listening to some old school jams later I felt like I was watching him grow up before my very eyes.
We loaded up the car and spent some family time bundled up, playing in the park. We floated sticks and chased them down the creek, and sat snuggled up in an old chair listening to the water ramble by.
I watched my family laugh, smile and be creative making pottery.
I sat at the table with my wife and her mom as we talked and laughed and I watched my beautiful kids. My girl made up stories with her stuffed animals while my boy cackled with glee as he watched tv.
Now I lie down next to the woman of my dreams, tired from a full day with a heart full of love.
It’s a happy New Year indeed.
