Good Monday morning, my friends! I am snuggled in my spot on the couch with a knit throw blanket and my pups, sipping the goodness that is my morning coffee. I am still enjoying Dunkin Original, but today I am trying a new creamer flavor. Although I tend to keep things fairly basic in the creamer realm, I am enjoying a new flavor today. It is Oatmeal Cream Pie, and oddly enough, it is delicious! Creamy, but not fake-sweet. The sun is shining this morning, but the air is cold! No complaints here.
Our weekend was filled with fish fries and movies, online mass and naps, and one extra special, wonderful, blessed hour...
Yep! Steve and I were able to visit my beautiful, strong, amazing mother!!!! She was beyond happy to see us, and we were so thankful to see how wonderfully she is doing. She is the best person I will ever know, and sitting with her reminded me of how blessed I am to call her Mom. We took her a coffee from Dunkin, smiled, laughed, and talked until it was time to go. If nothing else, this virus has reminded me that so much of what I thought I needed around me in life is simply background clutter, collections of unnecessary things, events, and thoughts that distracted me from what really matters. I am reminded that what I truly need, what is essential for my life, are the things I have had all along. Things like spending time with my mom, sharing stories, and sipping coffee.
I hope you have a cozy day, my friends. Today Flynn and I will homeschool and perhaps get out for a walk. Then we have pizza planned as we watch the finale of Matt the Bachelor choose between two women he has simultaneously dated in his journey to find love. Sounds promising, I know. Have a lovely day! Thanks for visiting.
