Days Like This

I’m so thankful for days like this. 

Days when you wake up and the sun is just starting to peak over the houses and into your bedroom window. 

Days when you look over and see the man of your dreams sleeping beside you and to know that the love is stronger than it was on the day you got married.

Days when just because it’s Saturday, you get to snuggle underneath the warm, down comforter a little while longer. 

Days when you get to see the excitement on your children’s faces because they are putting on their costumes for a party even though Halloween is still five days away.

Days when your children hug you so tight and look you in the eyes and say, “ I love you.” 

Days when you can sit back and watch your children laugh, jump, and play at a street festival that you stumble upon.

Days when the sun is shining and there’s just enough chill in the air to keep it from getting hot.
Days when you laugh so hard that your stomach hurts and then laugh some more.

I know that all of these things aren’t much, but for me, these things today made the greatest day that I’ve had in a long time.

It wasn’t marred by pain, I enjoyed every minute of it, I spent it with my family and my son even won a prize for best costume.

It’s so easy to look at the bad things that happen in our lives, so instead I’ll enjoy this day for all of the good things that happened. I’ll sit on the couch this evening with my feet kicked up in my husband’s lap, watching movies (some scary and some cartoon for my crazy crew), and smiling, because it was just that kind of day.


  1. Angie, you say that all of these things aren't much - one beautiful thing that cancer teaches you is that all of these things are everything ... what really matters in life. May that be the first of many, many more days like it for you. xx

    1. It was definitely a great day!! Hopefully, today will be another duplicate. I hope that you are having a great weekend!

  2. Angie - you deserve every single day to be like that. The comment from Suzan expressed my sentiments exactly. Cancer opened our eyes so we could see and experience every minute of every one of these special days. Enjoy! And thanks for allowing us to share the day with you through your very well written and descriptive post. Angie Y.

    1. Angie, I'm so glad to hear from you! I've been thinking about you. You're right, that's the one thing that I do appreciate about cancer. I have a greater appreciation for time, my family and friends.
