There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them. ~Vicki Baum
My boy is just so funny sometimes. He makes my heart sing with joy.
A few days ago he was looking through an old jewellery box of mine and found my long lost red rose hair clip. When he saw it, I realise now, it triggered his memory of a recent Postman Pat episode he has been loving lately where all the villagers are preparing for a Spring Dance. One couple dance together and the lady has a red rose when they dance. So when he found the hair clip, he came up to where I was sitting and said, 'Mummy, put it on'. So I put the clip into my hair. I thought that was it.... He then took my hands and said 'let's dance'! I was so stunned for a moment, but then I took his hands and danced away the afternoon with him. He was so delighted, and I heard lots of 'ole's and 'bravo's coming from him.
I so love when my days are blessed by these little gifts. They come unexpectedly and remind me to not get bogged down in the daily routines and rituals of caring for a toddler and a baby. I sometimes need nothing more but to sit back and enjoy the creativity and delight of a child.
