This picture doesn't mean much to anyone except for probably me. It is something that I have looked forward to for a long time.
To you it is a window sill with clutter, to me it is how I want to be living. I have always wanted a kitchen window over the sink. I've dreamed about having the windows open, washing dishes and yelling out, Henry time for dinner. I never said I was cooking the dinner, I just want to call him in for dinner.
Tonight that happened. I actually over heard Charlie tell Henry, "Mommy has waited a long time to yell out that window, it is her dream to call you in for dinner." I kind of stopped for a minute and realized this is our house, this is our life, and he was right, it was a dream I had.
I don't dream big and I realize it is the little things in life that make us who we are. I stood there in that moment and watched Henry play outside with Charlie, it was something I will never forget.
