Extraordinary April Morning

An ordinary April morning.  Until I decided to make it extraordinary.  So I made crepes for breakfast.  Totally unplanned, but I was reading and thinking about making days special.  Not just the holidays and special events and occassions.  The ordinary days where we live our lives.  Our lives are just the moment, the here and now, not the past, not the future.  That makes every day a day that should have something extraordinary about it.  So I decided to make crepes for Derrick so he would wake up to a special breaksfast with me.Needless to say, Derrick was thrilled to be greeted with the crepes for breakfast.  My son has always been a discerning eater!  Made me happy to use my china for breakfast, too.  So what if I only used the top two in the stack? It didn't take that much longer to clean up after we finished eating.  Especially when I consider that these are the memories of ordinary days that he'll take with him when he goes on in life.  Mornings that we shared a nice meal together, making it special just for the two of us.
