I'm looking out the sunroom windows at Hank and Lorelai sitting by the pool laughing and talking. The cold snap has left us and it's a beautiful sunny 70 degree day here in the South Carolina Lowcountry. I heard Lor on the phone a few minutes ago with a friend saying, I promised my daddy that I'd hang out with him this afternoon. Hank was beaming! If there ever was a girl who had her daddy wrapped around her little finger...well...it's our Lorelai.
Ordinarily, I'd go bouncing out there too, but I'm letting him have his moment. I had my moment last night. Hank had fallen asleep by the fireplace and I was upstairs in bed reading when Lor came in, climbed in, and snuggled up by me. After a few minutes she said, Did you know that you have a smell? Not QUITE knowing how to take that, I replied, Well goodness, I TOOK a bath just a couple of hours ago. NO...she replied, It's a MOMMY smell. And with that, she took a deep breath, smiled, snuggled in a little closer and fell asleep.
Oh yes...The Sweet Moments...they really keep us going, don't they??
