Favorite Moments

You know what is one of my favorite things about being a mother and wife?

It's that moment, near the end of the day, when the house is quiet and you look around and everything just feels like home.

The air still echos of children playing and laughing from a long afternoon, even though right now it's silent.

The house is lived in, but basically picked up and clean, the smells from dinner are still in the air, maybe there's even a half-asleep baby in your arms - but that's it, right there, that quick glimpse around the house and you know - I'm doing what I was made to do.
