I would have to say that, far and away, my favorite sound in the world is my children's voices. Still. After all these years. I'm sitting here catching up on emails, waiting for a load of laundry to finish, taking care of some record-keeping tasks for the young women's group at church, and suddenly I heard that sound.
I hadn't realized the time had come and school was out but I heard Sara and Ev talking as they came up the path and to the door. Evan came in the door singing and laughing at the same time.
I'm so grateful I got to be here, ears and all, and be in this moment.
