All Akimbo: Sweet Days of our Lives

By Kim Blakely, blessed mama

Today has been one of those days. Not one of those days, but one of those days I wouldn’t mind having over and over.

I don’t have any more money than I did yesterday (which is to say none at all), deadlines are looming and it’s been cool and dreary day.

In my house, though, it’s warm and dry and it smells nice because my mom is here – I love having my mom here – and she’s been in the kitchen making vegetable beef soup and potato corn chowder and frying fish and hushpuppies (not for the same meal, of course).

Moxie took a decent nap and Mojo has spent the day pretending this and that, unfazed by the morning’s disappointment about a rain-delayed trip to the pumpkin patch.

My husband just got home, and we’re all relaxed and eating and talking and just being.

I could use more of these days. I can’t get enough of these days. I wish these days for each and every one of you.
