....making it to church (almost) on time this morning.
....spending most of the afternoon fishing with good friends at our little bitty lake just outside of town.
....being able to be the rescuer for friends who were stranded with a broken-down vehicle, after the numerous times that I've had to be rescued myself.
....having all 5 of my kids under one roof again for the first time in almost 2 weeks.
....getting hugs and kisses from the kids as soon as they saw me when I picked them up from their father's house.
....hearing the older 3 kids recount every. single. second. of their vacation and seeing the excitement in their faces as they shared story after story.
....having 4 kids want to sleep in the same bed because they all missed each other so much.
....listening to the aforementioned 4 kids bickering because someone is hogging up all the space in the bed.
....looking around the house and surveying the damage done in the short amount of time that we've been home (less than an hour) but realizing that in the grand scheme of things, clutter and dirty laundry and empty Capri Sun packages are worth it to have my family back together again, even if it's only for a day.
