lost in the banter

Mornings are, once again, my favorite. 
I can hear them from where I lay, bantering back and forth and their voices make me smile... make me want to begin the day.  She offers to make him breakfast, he puts a slice of bread in her bento box and laughs about how he has made her lunch.  Hot cup of coffee in hand, I resist turning on the TV and the world so I can hear more of their world... I am quiet, but for a good morning... and the magazine in my lap is just a front. 
I am totally lost in them.

Oh this is so sweet. And banter by the way is so much better than arguing. :)

To be still and soak in those moments is such a testament to your heart. Sweet beginning to the day.
