Why This is a Perfect Moment

Patrick just put an apple pie in the oven.
Amelia smells like apple shampoo.
Abby is dressed like Penny from Hairspray.
My work for today is done.
The wind is howling outside, and we are here, together.
An autumn leaves candle is burning.
Spaghetti sauce is simmering on the stove.
I am wearing my coziest sweatshirt.
Ginger is snuggled up on Amelia's lap.
Tomorrow's work is still a day away.
I have a brand new red coat that Patrick said looks like Mary Tyler Moore.
I have a heart full of gratitude for my daughters, my husband, my home and my life.
