Today I ran almost three miles
and loved the cool air and the warm sun.
Today I smelled the lilacs, suddenly in bloom
and thought of Charlotte and her mama.
Today I dug in the garden, trading tools with Kathleen
and enjoyed working with her, even if I could have gotten more done alone.
Today I stopped to blow bubbles with Kathleen
and remembered Hudson and her mama and how one year felt.
Today I noticed how big Elizabeth is getting
and how her face is filling out—almost five months!
Today I looked out the window and saw the blue forget-me-nots under Henry's tree
and did not forget and still thought "What a good day."
