on occasion there are perfect days. they are random and fleeting but they do occur. today was one of those days. i'm not even totally sure how to consciously comprehend it.
i'm not sure that perfect is really so much the appropriate term for it. because, really...how perfect can it be when your 1 year old slings lasagna across the room or better yet leaves a trail of poop after descending from the bathtub and roams aimlessly through the house as mommy is searches frantically for a few more starbucks receipts hoping that the chai tea latte addiction will in fact single handily lead to a loss on this years tax return.
there are days....
when the sun shines.
when coupons for save $30 off your purchase of $75 or more come in the mail.
when you get to share coffee with a friend.
when people tell you your work is good.
when you make someone smile.
when you get embraced wildly by not 1, not 2 but all 3 of your kids.
when you get to contemplate the decision of the bachelor with your mom.
when you have another awesome session with another fabulous senior.
when the taxes are done.
when you get to make a double batch of brownies with your daughter and let her lick the spoon.
when you really feel like you are complete, in every single way.
