Harlan didn’t have school this morning, but the younger ones did. It’s the first time in a long time that I’ve just had her at home with me while the other two are away. It brought back the familiarity when it was just the two of us on our daily adventures. She’s much more mature now and we connect on a different level than we did years ago.
It was nice to sit down and have an actual conversation with her. After dropping off the younger ones at school I asked her what she wanted to do. She told me breakfast and the playground. It was her morning and I know she enjoyed the one-on-one time just as much as I did. We sat and ate breakfast outside while she took a couple of bites and then ran on the playground jumping and climbing. We both had smiles as we enjoyed the time together without any distractions.
That’s what makes me happy.
Now tell me something good. Something that’s made you happy. It can be big, it can be small, just something that has put a smile on your face.
