Makes you smile

Gifts that rock.

My kids make me smile daily. The way they act. The way they talk. The way their little eyes look when they try to understand something, and the way they light up when they do. The way they get up on their days off to hug me before I leave for work. The way they squeeze me as hard as they can when they hug me. The way their little hands rub my back as they hug me. The way they grow up. The way I comment to myself that they grow up too fast.

The way they paint rocks specifically for me, so I can put them in my office. The way my daughter hunted down a rock of the exact shape she wanted, and painted it like a Lady Bug because I always call her ma Coccinnelle. The way my son painted a spider in a web on a big rock, because it looked really cool and he thought I would like it.

That makes me smile.
