Today I'm linking up with Emily at Chatting at the Sky here for Tuesdays Unwrapped. It's a place to choose and celebrate one gift from an ordinary day.
Today I chose this...
A rare moment.
These are boys who are very physical and full of energy.
When they are together it's Legos, wrestling, star wars, climbing...anything action related.
So when I popped my head out of the kitchen the other night to find out why there wasn't any noise, I was delighted to see them huddled together on the couch as big brother read one of the newly borrowed library books aloud.
I smiled and turned to head back to the kitchen and my dinner preparations when I thought of the camera. I took the picture to capture a gift in my ordinary day. Finding 3 brothers sharing an impromptu story together was a gift that needed to be embraced and celebrated. I especially needed this on this particularly challenging day of 3 wired boys, lots of tattling, time outs and a minor injury. It was a welcoming bit of space in between the loud and rambunctious norm.
It helped this mommy.
And I'm thankful for it.
What gift in your ordinary day can you unwrap today?
