Tonight I'm in awe.
Of the world around us.
And of Joshua,
who makes friends so easily.
Of nature's eye candy
and of heart-shaped cacti.
Of breathtaking blue skies.
Of my daughter and her positivity
and of my husband and his pioneer spirit.
Of the Texas Hill Country
and of the handiwork of this German piece.
Of the big bass that took John's purple plastic worm
and almost got away with it.
Of the neighborhood deer who are almost like pets
and of my son Jacob, who loves to
forge ahead and blaze trails.
And I'm grateful for it all.
