This evening I was standing making grilled cheese and my two boys came in the kitchen.  
The little boy jumped  up onto my husband for a great big piggyback bear hug.  
They stayed watching me make them grilled cheese sandwiches quietly.  
I could feel them watching me...
Finally, breaking the silence, my DH said, 
"We are both mesmerized by your grilled cheese cooking abilities!!"
I laughed and looked back at them, realizing that honestly they were watching me in complete adoration.
I knew it was one of the best moments of my life.
Enjoy your little moments!

Stay warm 
and be with the 
Ones that 
you LOVE!
