Ah my dear my dear - don't we wish all of our days could be that pretty package all wrapped up in a bow! But no, sometimes we have to have some days that make that package look a little less festive and a little less shiny so the colors and and happiness gets in perspective for the special days. Today though you celebrate the gift which isn't all about the pretty paper but the life and sunshine that peaks through that window in the background. The real present seems to me to be Miss "A" playing that cello with that impish grin at the end for her Momma. Ha - it doesn't get any warmer or richer or more special than that.
