*clean clothes, coming in after a whole day on the clothesline, smelling sunshine and fresh air..
*a child finally asleep, without coughing or crying
*seeing the cold child's lips turn from purple to red, when she's wrapped in towels and your arms.
*a child learning to knit for the first time
*a little girl in a white apron, mixing the bread dough with her wooden mixing spoon.
*a laughing baby
*pasta, beef and fresh tomatosauce when you've been too busy to eat all day since breakfast
*a beautiful night sky
*hot apple stew and custard
*a wonderful hot shower in the evening
*snuggle up in bed after a long, exhausting day
*to know that you are loved beyond measure
*being wrapped in God's love
*to fall asleep listening to His soothing voice
