On depth

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.

And you?
