Today was a long day…a busy, exhausting day. But today, as every day, there were so many reasons to smile, and I’m thankful I was able to find them. (I hope you found reasons to smile as well, and I hope you’ll share them in the comments below.)
Today I smiled because I found this hanging on my nine-year-old daughter’s wall:
(It was completely her idea, and discovering it in her room made me happy.)
Today I smiled because my 16-year-old chose to use his free time to do this:
(Where did he get this talent? And even more baffling, when did his hands get so big?!)
Today I smiled because I know there won’t be ANY days like this in heaven.
Today I smiled because a sweet friend offered to help…and insisted that I let her.
Today I smiled (guffawed, rather) because my 14-year-old caught me off guard multiple times with his unexpected, witty comments.
Today I smiled because we found these while cleaning out the garage, and the girls got such a kick out of them.
And as the day was drawing to a close, I smiled once more at this conversation with my three-year-old:
Remington: One day, God said to me, “Remi, you and I are going to catch an octopus.”
Me: Remi, do you remember how God talks to us?
Me: Through the Bible. We read the words in the Bible, and then we know what God is saying to us.
Me: So…Does the Bible say that you are going to catch an octopus?
Remington: (with a big smile) YES!!
You just can’t reason with a three-year-old.
What made you smile today?
