Today this was waiting for the bus in the afternoon. I had two meetings cancelled today which meant I had time to go home before I worked in the evening. I walked down our long driveway with my wife and my son, the sun shining on the snow, the air cold but typical for late January. It was beautiful. I thought of nothing else at that moment. I watched my son run and jump in the snow and I was content.
The school bus has given me that–time to just be outside on a fine day and look around and be with my family. And then my daughter gets off the bus and she is such a big kid and I am a proud dad and we walk back to the house together.
Today, as on many days, it was the best part of the day.
