- Walking around the lake with my dear family, watching the kids get as close to the water as possible.
- Listening to Steph tell Jake all day that she was fishing (no fishing pole in sight).
- Sitting on the patio furniture for the first time since the fall.
- Pulling out the 'ol oboe and playing some tunes.
Rick is chillin' on the couch playing the guitar. Holly's in the background playing with her toys.
Heidi's at the table doing a puzzle with the kids. Everyone's happily putting their section of the puzzle together.
Meanwhile, I am sitting at my laptop in the middle of it all, thinking about how grateful I am to be a part of such a wonderful family.
At this point I stop, look around me, and say to myself, "Sis, this is really livin'!"
