Yesterday my cousin brought her sweet babies, ages 3 and 1, over from Portland to visit. My aunt and uncle are visiting my parents from southern California, so it was a family breakfast affair. I sure love having babies in the house.

Everything is so exciting when babies are around. The birds are taking a bath in the fountain outside the window? AMAZING. The bushes out front are full of plump blueberries? DELIGHTFUL. The big truck behind the house is pouring cement? GET OUT OF TOWN.

Talking about the bathing birdies

Life is a stream of delights cascading into every moment when you're a kid. 

When you're a kid, eating trail mix is HILARIOUS. There's just something about peanuts and red M&Ms, man.

And best of all, when you're a kid, every Bible story is fresh and awe-inspiring:

Here, R and I are reading excerpts from the book of John. The story of Jesus washing his disciples' feet was particularly noteworthy to little R. ("Mom, Jesus washed off the mud and animal poop!")

I'll tell you what, if you're wanting to increase your happiness quotient, go hang out with some babies.

Heavens to Betsy, they're one of life's greatest delights.

Happy Tuesday, friends.

Cheering for ya,
