Simple Joy

I think the simple joy that kids take in things is one of the best parts of parenting.  Yesterday was Valentines day and the kids got cards in the mail from the grandmothers and they got a tiny box of chocolates that I picked up for them.  But you would have thought it was Christmas watching them tear into all of it.  It really made me smile.  Even though I know that day is manufactured by the greeting card business it was a nice bright spot in the middle of all the winter illness stress and cold weather yuck.  It hasn’t been a super cold winter thankfully but we have had a little cold snap this week that has me really wishing for spring so a little bright spot in the day filled with warmth and love was just what I needed!
