Dear friends,

Today was perfect in many ways.

I am so blessed…

The amount of thought, love, effort, and sincerity put into today…by everyone

The signs, the cake, the food, the flowers, the music, the stories, the gifts, the love, the dancing, the hugs, the smiles, the wishes, the blessings, the friends, the sun, the love, the love, the love…

My favorites from today:
ST as a clumsy 8 year old boy on TV, “I found a tree in my plate”, Z’s grocery shopping extravaganza and Salahuddin Ayubbid (story of the year!), the sock jumping, rent/zent/lent/fent/nent/went/sent/ment…

And every moment in between..

Thanks for rekindling the sweetness in my life,

A matter of perspective

Kids and pigeons.

The cutest sight. Ever.

A runny-nosed, pink-cheeked, bundled up, four year old boy squealing as he chases pigeons that don’t seem scared, rather annoyed that they must fly 2 feet away only to have to do it again as the excited runny-nosed, pink-cheeked, bundled up four year old gets excited all over again.

His mother less so, as she is hurrying to get to where she needs to be.

But the ephemeral moment of bliss for this boy is worth pausing for. Smile and appreciate this moment, this unadulterated moment that involves only a pigeon, most don’t stop twice to think about.

Most are annoyed, disgusted by these “rats with wings”, but if we just observe kids and pigeons…

Our days might just slightly improve.
