The Perfect Day: It rained today. So, we went to Barnes and Noble –just me and Baby. We looked at board books, read lots of them until we found the perfect one to take home. We sat in the cafe and watched it rain. I drank tea and shared little pieces of my blueberry scone, and she smiled with each bite. An old man came up to our table, smiled like my grandpa used to smile and said, “You’ve got quite a connection with that one, eh? I can see the love in both of your eyes.” And then he walked away. He didn’t see my tears, and I didn’t get a chance to tell him that what he just said was one of the nicest things anyone has ever told me.
It was raining hard when we left–we got wet in the parking lot, but it didn’t matter. Then, we went home and sat in front of the window and watched it rain. We snuggled on the couch and waited for the dogs to join us. It doesn’t get any better than This Day.
