The girls were at the kitchen table, dressed in Papa's old shirts, painting up a storm. Tom T. Hall was playing (Sneaky Snake is the girls' very favorite song). I was preparing supper, while watching and listening to the girls in action. Perfection.
Then we returned to reality:
Clarissa tore her paper and it upset Veronica, for some reason. She was inconsolable for a solid 5 minutes, all because of a torn piece of paper. Clarissa, meanwhile, was fine with the "broken" paper.
The sadness subsided. Painting and cooking resumed. Life is good around here.
What's good in your life?
