A couple of Saturdays ago, we had a family day around the house. Washed the car, soaked up the sun, and swam in our pool for the first time. It was such a completely ordinary day…. and that’s what I loved about it!
It reminded me of home videos when I was G’s age. Running around outside. Playing in the hose. Floatin’ in the pool… And whenever I’m enjoying a very Ordinary-Florida-type day the words of my Poppa always seem to spring to mind… “I wonder what the poor folk are doing today.”
And it is so appropriate, because I am rich, indeed. I just have to look into the beautiful, smiling eyes of my daughter to know how true it is.
We are living the good life!
