Ordinary Blessings

It’s funny that today’s prompt is ordinary blessings, for that is precisely what I was thinking about yesterday as I sat on the edge of my daughter’s sand box, the cool breeze blowing in from the ocean, Ellie, covering my feet with scoops of sand, smiling up at me each time she’d cover up another one of my toes. The record player was on in the house, sending out a steady lull of sweet music and the faint smell of my husband’s late afternoon coffee lingered in the air. The sky was blue, the yard  green from last week’s glorious rain. I looked down at my beautiful child and I thought to myself, it doesn’t get much better than this.

*finally getting a chance to join in with Write Alm’s Prompt-A-Day for March.

  1. Your words are so wonderfully descriptive I could almost feel the sand on my toes. Almost…but I could definitely see ellie’s sweet face.
