February is my favorite.
I was sitting at the park behind my house the other afternoon, surrounded by good friends and neighbors, watching Elliot play soccer in our neighborhood soccer league that is run completely by volunteers. Stella was on the playground nearby with her best cousins. I could see Oliver across the street at the elementary school, playing a pick up game of baseball. The sun was shining, and the breeze in the shade was just right.
I am thankful for this happy, simple life that I lead. I've always known that it is in the recognition of small things that contentment and happiness grow, but I was glad to be reminded of it that day in the park.
It is easy to be happy in February in Arizona, when the sky is blue and the flowers are blooming and the sun is bright but not too hot yet. I wish I could send a little sunshine your way.
