[Warning: A total, off-the-grid post for normal topics here]
Today, after 2 pretty long days with my kids while the wife was out with friends, I had lost a lot of patience. My daughter fell asleep in our bedroom as she does sometimes, and I was preparing to bring her into her room. I usually go into her room first and get it all ready so that I can quietly just pick her up from ours and put her in her bed.
Tonight as I did this routine, I pulled the sheets back and discovered something poking out beneath her pillow. This is what I pulled out:
This was unsolicited. Something she probably was drawing today while keeping herself busy. A HUGE smile came across my face and my eyes teared up. I am so humbled to have been rewarded in my life with such a wonderful spirit in my daughter and son. It is small things like this in unconditional form that remind me about what life is about.
I love my family too, Zoe.
