When I'm being good and remember to take my vitamins, I take Vitamin D because it has so many wonderful, healthy properties. But the best Vitamin D is direct from the source, when you can really feel the sun healing. We've all been so sick lately, so sick that it's started make our minds and spirits sick and sad, too, so that we spent all day snapping at each other and just being generally grumpy.
We left the house, found some serious sunshine, and it was good, the kind of good where you just stop and soak it all in. We found a big open area and just let the boys stretch their legs and run, find big leaves, and play hide n seek.
They've started to hold hands when they walk places. It makes my heart explode in ways that I did not ever think possible.
Then on our way out, we found all of these yellow flowers and yellow is such my happy color. Amongst the yellow flowers, monarchs danced around and over our heads. It was one of those moments where you just breathe deep and count your blessings that you're there in that moment.
I might still be germy and gross, but if I could bottle yesterday's dose of sunshine? I think I'd never be sick again.
