Simply Perfect

Today was the perfect morning for me.

I was up and awake at 6:30am to feed and water the animals,

Made homemade blueberry muffins at 6:45am with a little girl who was up too early,

Cuddled with a little boy who is still recovering from a flu at 7am while drinking my peppermint tea,

At 8am I was sitting at the kitchen table eating the fabulous muffins and reading devotions with the 3 kids. The sun was now streaming in the windows.

Yup...now I'm ready for the day.

I love it when I'm able to fulfill my fantasy roll of organic farmhouse wife. It makes me happy. It makes me feel like I'm doing something right. Like I'm being the authentic ME that I want to be.(ME being 'Anne of Green Gables' of course ) Yup....for an hour today I am the perfect mom. And if the rest of the day goes downhill I'll still have this morning :)
