Lazy Sunday Afternoon

I spent a very peaceful time with the alternative mother and some of her children (as well as my own!) this afternoon. We picnicked in a field and the sun shone on us as though it was the middle of July. The younger children climbed trees and the two older ones lounged around with us on the rugs. We, the alternative mother and me, reminisced about how they have grown up so. How they sat on the same rugs as babies and gurgled politely to each other before vomiting their excess food down our backs!! How we had spent lazy days with them, with nothing much else to do and no where else much to go.
It's a long time ago now and they have grown into beautiful young people.

We are blessed.

This sounds like a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I always say to enjoy your children while they are young, and I think you definitely are!

It was so nice to see you stopped by! I'm sorry I've been out of circulation so much these past couple of months but after having another surgery this past week, my surgeon seems to think I should FINALLY be on the road to recovery. I am sitting here on the couch with my little Chloe dog perched near my shoulder, watching all the little birds flit about in the tree outside the windows. A perfect Fall-like day here, but one to savor, too. Bless you.

That sounds WONDERFUL! Sadly I had to work but Saturday I spent ALL day outside and it was gorgeous!

My kids are all growing up, too, and so are my grand kids now although one is a baby. My youngest is 13, almost 14. Memories of the good times are awesome, aren't they?

Sadly we don't have enough afternoons like this. As always the post was beautifully written. There is an award for you at my place.

Sounds like a great afternoon, and yes they do grow up fast - too fast sometimes.
