these are the days...

these are days you'll remember

never before and never since, I promise
will the whole world be warm as this
and as you feel it, you'll know it's true
that you are blessed and lucky
it's true, that you are touched by something
that will grow and bloom in you
these are days you'll remember

when May is rushing over you with desire
to be part of the miracles you see in every hour
you'll know it's true, that you are blessed and lucky
it's true, that you are touched by something
that will grow and bloom in you

these are the days
that you might fill with laughter
until you break

these days you might feel a shaft of light
make its way across your face
and when you do
you'll know how it was meant to be
see the signs and know their meaning

you'll know how it was meant to be
hear the signs and
know they're speaking to you
to you

-10,000 maniacs "These are the Days"

Last night, we walked down our block to an open field. I sat in the grass with little Mango as the boys and Big Daddy played Frisbee. I don't think that we have ever played Frisbee down there before. Yet, it seemed as if we had always done what we were doing right then, with our family just as it is right now. There was a lightning storm that we watched move across the sky. Then a small bat darted over our heads in the breeze. It was a perfect moment. We were together, so healthy, and blessed to be out on a beautiful night.
While the boys played and ran through the field, this song played in my head. I am horrible at remembering lyrics, but this song always felt a certain way to me. Looking at the lyrics tonight, they really capture the way I feel about this moment and this time in our lives, right now.
I feel so blessed.

Don't you just love those moments. The picture of you and your precious little girl is so sweet. Reminds me of when my little girls was that small and my boys were about the same as yours.
