+ I love the month of June
+ first fireflies last night
+ got some of the Village planted yesterday morning before the heat
+ the scent of sheets dried outside in the sun
+ Jazz makes me smile when he wrestles his stuffed bunny but my dogs make me smile a lot
+ Bob wrestled those very heavy half barrels out of my car trunk and will paint them for me
+ the quiet fan in a hot bedroom making sleep easy last night
+ cold water from the garden well on a very hot and humid day

My kids.

A body that works and moves even if it's more body than I'd like to have. (Watching my son struggle through physical therapy makes me so grateful for my mobility.)

The support I have here.

A roof over our heads and food in the fridge.

My husband's job.

My husband.
