Smiling in the Dark

It's Late
I'm listening to the quiet swish swish of the wipers.
Kristen is softly humming along with another Rascal Flatts song.
Jesse & Boone are sleeping soundly in the backseat.
I'm deep in thought, full of self pity.
I'm thinking about how things are changing, how life is going too quickly and angry at myself for feeling like I'm wasting my days. As a train of thought goes, I start thinking about the babysitter I've recently chosen for Jesse....
Then the familiar streetlights snap me out of my thoughts when I realize not only am I smiling in the darkness but I have a full on stupid grin. 
Hopefully Kristen doesn't look my way now.....eesh!!! He'd think I'm full on crazy :)
But the thoughts of my babysitter, a friend and participant of our girls weekend has led me back to that day, that night where I laughed, laughed so hard in fact, that I had tears, the hardest I've laughed in such a long time. The laugh so hard that you bend over and hold your belly.
It's at that moment that I realize life is good, everything will work itself out and I'm thankful for the many blessings in my life both family and very dear friends.

And the reason Jesse & Boone were fast asleep?
All the running around of course :)

Happy Sunday!
