Precious Moments

It's bedtime on a Friday night. As we sit in her little living room on the other end of the house we both yawn as I read my book and she works her puzzle book. I look over and instead of asking the usual "you ready for bed" I raise one eyebrow and say "I think I want some ice cream". Her face lights up as she places her order "Black Walnut please" I hurriedly make two bowls with three scoops each and head back into her room. She has her hot pink towel over her lap and a smile on her face. As I hand her bowl to her she says "I'm gonna get too big for my britches eating all this ice cream" and then she digs in. It's moments like these that I will always cherish, never forgetting how blessed I am to return the same love and kindness I've received.
