1. Seeing old acquaintances that I haven't seen in a while and greeting with a warm hug.
2. After lunch, we migrate to the porch and slowly rock while we analyze the day. No hurries, no pressure, sugar cookies in hand and loving family to discuss things with.
3. I glance out the window and see Tess playing volleyball with the older teens. She's not shy at all and steps right in to take her place.
