The sight of a child laughing wildly at the leaves blowing by.
The heavy, earthly smell of a good farm dog, laced with sweat from the day's work.
The sweet, crisp morning air etched in a glimmering fog.
The checking off of chores from the to-do list, making way for puzzles, long walks, and sticky baby fingers.
The warmth and protection of his hand on my back as he leads me into a room.
The smell of homemade bread and the promise of full bellies.
The blessing of work and the provision it provides.
The thing called family, a piece of Heaven on Earth.
