To be here in Michigan making memories! To pick blackberries on cool days… To spend hours at the lake with no agenda besides our whims… To laugh! Oh my, to laugh… To watch my sons love and trust… To smell clean, wet morning air… To be inspired, and challenged, and supported all at once… To watch the boys’ eyes sparkle and stories emerge hatched from the attention and affection they recieve… To become an extended family, with smiles and laughter and a few shrugs, making memories that fill my heart. <3. Oh, it is good.
