You can’t do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth. – Unknown

What makes your life feel wide and deep?
For me it’s life itself – those little moments that make my heart sing with joy:
The first taste of Mom’s homemade buns slathered with Raspberry jam.
A shared look between me and the hubbs last night.
Old dog leaning in for an extended pet.
Enveloping hugs from my boys.
A fridge full of homemade goodness and the smiles my efforts generated.
Shared laughter – and tears – with my sister.
Chats with my brothers. Tea at 4:00 pm.
Windows open. College Football and Baseball playoffs.
The wind in my face, the sun on my back and gravel crunching beneath my tennies.
The opportunity to return to where I grew up but come home to where I belong.
All of these and more … make my life wide and deep.
