|~Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life~ Every Thursday at Like Mother Like Daughter|
|When I'm not wearing it proudly on my chest, I stick it onto a magnet on the fridge. Yep, thar's my fridge.|
This is my Field Hockey Mom button. Every year, during a game early in the season, someone pops over to me and hands me one of these. I don't know who takes the players' photos or makes them into buttons or goes through the trouble of tracking down all the parents, but, to me, it's like magic! Poof! Here's your button! My family envies me these buttons and they all fight over the old ones. But 'tis pretty, no?
|I think you see why I had to go out of order?|
|This is how we met, after all...|
|And again I say, "Le sigh..."|
I almost made this my Pretty or Happy photo. But I settled on Real. This is a real man. He's older, grayer, a little more wrinkled, a bit less fit, and a wee bit more serious, but he's every bit the man I fell madly in love with 20 years ago. Sometimes I think back and remember the teenager who used to play with my hair in class and doodle our names on his desk just to make me blush and, instead of missing those young, carefree days, I enjoy the reality of living the dream and the promise of growing old together. Oh, how I love this man! This is love most real.
Have you found contentment in your every day this week? Join in the fun!
