Mushy Blessings

Chris, Lilly and I were enjoying a lazy morning spoon in bed.  Well, not exactly a lazy morning for Chris, who had already driven Benjamin to early morning baseball practice and had just enough time to come home, catch another half hour of sleep before he would have to head out again.   So there we are- post walk, pre-pickup- the three of us cuddled as close as a threesome could be.  Chris is, of course, trying to shove Lilly out of the bed so that the two of us can get a ten minute cuddle, but like a boomerang, Lilly keeps returning.   How could any being possibly love us any more?   I will never know what went on in the first 6 months of Lilly’s life, since that’s when we adopted her, but I do know that she knows how lucky she is to be a part of our loving family now.  She will forever be grateful for us.  And us for her. Chris gives up and resolves to just enjoy her soft mushy warmth….  I know that 2’s supposed to be company and 3 a crowd, but how can anyone possibly resist this!?    It’s all about accepting your good fortune, embracing it and expressing it openly to the ones you love.  And what better way to show that than with one big spoony mush.  Like heaven…
