The best part of every day

When the sun goes down, and the curtains are drawn, it is time for FLASHLIGHT RAVE!!!! John, Perrin, and I turn off all the lights in the house, crank up the tunes on the radio, and shake our booties while running around with flashlights. I'm sure it looks like Watergate going on over here every night, but it is what I look forward to every day. All the troubles of the day are washed away by our silly ravin'. Right before bedtime, we climb under the covers of our bed and chase each other's light beams until Perrin giggles himself into a stupor.
My boys are my biggest joy. Even though there are times when it may seem overwhelming, and I feel utterly inept, these times of pure happiness strip away all the moments that made my head want to explode and make it easy to look forward to the adventures of the next day.

OK, I must be PMSing, cause I was all touched and emotional after reading the Yarn Harlot's fabulous 10/24 post (www.yarnharlot.ca) and after reading yours, I'm practically crying. You're a wise, beautiful woman, Tucker.

Ah, thanks Ceci. I loved the yarn harlot's post too. I can completely understand where she's coming from with regards to giving value to the art of knitting. So many people just regard it as a mindless hobby when it really does take skill and grace to create something beautiful.
