Today I love Christian because, as he started to read a new book to me in the car, he had the hardest time coming to terms with the fact that the narrator is a girl.
Today I love Max because he asked me to smell Lucy’s bacon-flavored treat before giving it to her. “Smell it,” he said, “It smells guuuuud.”
Today I love Ryan because he helps a lot of people every single day. And because he gave me a hickey.
Today I love my dad because he is making a pot of chili for my party, even though he isn’t coming.
Today I love my friend Kathy because she is coming to my party, even though it might be alone.
Today I love Lucy because she follows me around the house and when I look down, she is gazing up at me as if to ask, “OK, what next?”
Today I love a middle aged woman named Bonnie who gave me a heavenly one-hour massage.
Today I love Elvis because he inspired the Reeses Peanut Butter & Banana Cup.
Today I love my mom because when she watched Max and Christian yesterday, they had so much fun Max kicked me in the shin when I got home. He didn’t want her to leave.
Today I love my friend Alyssa because she texted me to let me know her dad’s surgery went well.
Today I love Mrs. Smith because she was waiting on my porch when Max’s bus arrived to bring him home, and I was still a block away. I also love her because she truly is sympathetic to every sad story I ever tell her, even if it’s the sad but true story about how I cannot seem to make dinner rolls.
Today I love my kitchen because I like to stand at my island and pretend I have a cooking show.
Today I love Alison because she gave me an awesome book about vampires.
Today I love the Germans because they invented the premiere way to make a pancake.
Today I love everybody who takes time to blog because it’s so fun to peek into your worlds and so much easier than breaking into your houses and reading your diaries.
