Allison telling me about her new friend. Each year she goes on and on about a new friend she has made, and it always turns out to be a special needs child. I love how she befriends them without a second thought about it. She's been doing this since 1st grade. A few autistic girls, a deaf girl, and now, just yesterday she told me about her new friend who is "bald and doesn't have eyebrows." I asked if the girl had cancer and she just shrugged and said "I didn't ask. We just played." Simple as that. It makes me happy that she can just be so accepting of others, without boundaries.
This one probably makes me a bad neighbor, but it brings me joy that my neighbor got the worst of the storm this week instead of us. I'm sorry he has a split tree in his yard, but am glad that for once it isn't our yard that took the hit.
Listening to my girls be nice to each other when they don't think I can hear them. Allison puts aloe on Mariah's sunburned skin and Mariah tells Allison she has beautiful hair. I love catching those shared sweet sister moments. It's a rare thing.
Watching the sunset on the beach. Nothing is more calming for me.
What were some of your little joys this week?
