reading This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

-Psalm 118:24

Today, was like many other days, filled with highs and lows.  It was filled with challenges as most days are, yet, when I look back on they day, this is how I see it. I see Big Sissy in your favorite tree on a glorious blue sky day. I watched you through the window and loved this beautiful scene. I see Bubby running around the back yard with your tennis racket hitting a ball as high as you could over and over--yelling Mama, watch, watch me. And I see baby Sissy making your "magical imaginary garden" with pots and dead flowers.

The Joy, it wins.

Yes, we had some math struggles, some arguments to simmer, and some pre-dinner meltdowns (after no nap). But I say Joy wins, it was a most beautiful day to remember.
