On this, the first day of the new year, the small thing I appreciate is coffee with my husband, both of us busy at our laptops, while our daughters play their computers nearby (and the boy plays a game in his room). We are safe and warm and happily engaged in our own special interests and yet connected in our love of technology and games.
I appreciate that yesterday, the girlies insisted on geek camp and chose a documentary about dolphins for us to watch. Lily filled her notebook with drawings of dolphins while watching.
And I always appreciate the comfort of a cat in my lap.
Happy New Year!
