“I have never been a millionaire. But I have enjoyed a crackling fire, a glorious sunset, a walk with a friend, and a hug from a child. There are plenty of life’s tiny delights for all of us.” Jack Anthony
Tonight as I sat on my bed working a bit while the kids were out with with Nana H. out for a walk, I answered emails and planned my busy day tomorrow. As I typed, I heard the bustling from our entry way and the pitter patter of 2 little feet coming down the hall. I could hear E squealing as she conversed with anyone who would listen from her stroller.
The door to our room cracked distinctly and there he was, his blond curls bouncing on his head as he waddled toward me.The S on his Superman T-shirt protruding slightly on his little toddler belly.
“Hi bug,” I said softly as I scooped him up with his arms outstretched for me to grab him.
The light in the bedroom was getting dim as the sun set.
I could smell the fresh, crisp air on his chubby cheeks as I pulled his face to mine for a kiss.
He wrapped around his arms around my neck and gave me a hug and turned abruptly to point at the TV and say “Mi.”
“No Moose right now bug,” I said referring to his insatiable desire to watch the Nick Jr. cartoon Moose any time he sees the TV remote.
More words, more independence.
A moment filled with tiny delight with my Q.
I wish you a day with many tiny delights with loved ones, friends, a passion, a hobby, everything and anything that gives your heart light. What tiny delights help make today ‘yournewfavoriteday?’
