as good as it gets

i was alone tonight.
i finished working early,
and pete had taken the kids to the pool.
my house was quiet,
and not the kind of quiet i like.
i missed my kids,
i missed their sounds,
their requests,
and mostly just their presence.
i was overwhelmed with what a privilege it is to be their mother.
as i thought of their devoted love & interest to me,
it dawned on me that this stage of life i'm in is certainly as good as it is going to get.
if i can't be happy with this wonderful life,
then i'm afraid i will never be happy.
and i am happy.
perhaps happier than ever.
