Moments that Make Me Smile
Sunrises, sunsets. Smiles. Laughter.
Yellow. Flowers and raindrops. Worship music. Windows down.
Hair blowing in the wind.
Slobbery baby kisses. Crashing of ocean waves.
Cricket chirps. Avacados. Oranges.
Sushi. Block BBQ. Movie nights.
Tan lines. Green.
Fresh cut lawn. Birds singing.
Baby squeals and grins.
A perfect photograph.
The word of God. Perfection.
Play Dates. Clean kitchen.
Brownies with Strawberries.
A great chat.
Sleeping baby noises.
Hubby cuddles. Candle flickers.
What are some of your smile moments?
It was priceless to watch and observe the sheer joy that my mom had being with Daisy. She played with her tirelessly, read the same books over and over again, walked all over the place, played with boring toys day after day and never grew weary of it. Grandma's, Grandpas and the older and wiser folks get it. They get that life flies by and that if we aren't careful it will pass us up and we will have missed it all. They get that it isn't always about the crazy big future plans so much as it is about soaking up the moment. Be here. Be now. Spice up the routine. Keep life fresh.
These pictures melt me. Daisy adored my mom and followed her all over the house. She emptied my mom's purse, make up bags and pencil pouch a kajillion times. She begged my mom to let her up on her bed where she could spend an hour playing with all of my mom's things. She would reach up for my mom's finger as a way of asking my mom to take her outside or to go on a walk. These pictures capture an inkling of that fun and I will cherish them forever.
