Simple Joy!




There was a lone broken candy cane in the Christmas box from last  year and Vivian found it. In her world she hit the lottery. She insisted  that she put it on the tree immediately. I obliged and what a joy it was for all of us, well except for Big Sister who thought it looked rather silly. Moments like this come to us as gifts. Unexpected - pure and simple JOY! Setting the tone was so worth it.

Namaste!

  3. This totally cracks me up! You never know what a child is going to latch onto and go into fits of ecstacy over. I'm so glad you posted this...its such a perfect combination of "everyday" and "magic" :)
