Yesterday on our way home from camp, we stopped at the library.
I don't think we've been to the library since last summer.
I know that's terrible. But, Brady gets books from school, I pick up
books at consignment shops and we buy them. We need to get to the library more often.
Brady was excited to pick out his books...and I got a few books too.
After lunch, Brady and I layed on a blanket under a tree and read for over an hour.
We were in the shade and there was a slight breeze...it felt perfect.
It's so true that the simple things in life make us the happiest.
We both layed there reading our books quietly. It was one of those times that I didn't want to end.
A couple of times Brady put his hand on my back and rubbed back and forth...as if to say he was enjoying our time too.
As I was tucking him into bed last night he said, Mom, maybe we could
read out on the blanket again tomorrow?
My heart is filled with so much love for this boy.
Life really is about the simple things.
I read this quote at the library yesterday:
I thought my mom's whole purpose was to be my mom. That's how she made me feel.

I love it!
