I guess searching for ducks at the river really tuckers a little soul out. Or maybe it was the search for treasures at the antique mall. You'll be happy to know we did come away with a few, three vintage Bright & Early books for Piper and a few yards of vintage fabric and buttons for me.
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
The few rough days we've had here and there since Piper's surgery has made me think more about the treasures we have in our life. Appreciate those treasures more. These are the things we need to remember. Like how Piper yells 'see ya' to Papa from the breakfast table as he heads out the door for work. Or how even at 14 months the world is even better when you're securely affixed to Mama's chest.
