There are many things that I love....my daughter and husband being a big love, and then there are the smaller loves. The anticipation of chocolate, small kindnesses from friends that cheer a day, the full-blown sad-movie cry that you can't stop no matter how ridiculous your brain says it is, the sound of cicadas in the trees on those skirt-stuck-to-the-back-of-your-legs days in the middle of August (remember those?) Wrapping my fingers around a warm mug of something...anything!...on a day as cold as it is today. Making things. And the smell of roses, always the smell of roses.
