Chasing Contentment

Sunday, March 11

Mike has given me the most amazing gift today... a simple one, really, but a cherished something that I've yearned for lately. He's given me an hour or so here at home alone.

That probably doesn't sound like much, but I could count the times that I've had this much time at home alone since we moved here on one hand, most likely with digits to spare. And social though I am, I do love a bit of solitude.

And now, an entire hour spreads out ahead of me, and I have so many options of ways to spend that hour. It feels lush and lovely. And I am grateful for small but powerful blessings... and for a man who knows me well enough to know how much this means to me.
