I made pancakes (both blueberry and chocolate chip!) for B.J. and the kids this morning, and there was this moment when I looked at the three of them and I felt Gozer wiggling, and I realized that everything really important was right at that table. For just a moment I was able to stop worrying about everything and just rest in the knowledge that my little family was safe and happy, together at the table, enjoying pancakes and planning the day together.
That was a nice way to start the weekend.
