Evan says this now, anytime someone does something kind, or says something kind to him.
"It makes my heart glow"
And he smiles.
I know I'm probably partial to that smile, in fact I'm sure I am,
But that smile makes my heart glow.
This was on an afternoon I had planned to clean.
Evan had other plans for us.
He said, "The girls get to have a fun afternoon, why can't we?"
(He was refering to them being dropped off at their Girls Club)
I knew he was right
but it is hard to put the work aside sometimes.
and I know the work needs to be done,
but on this day
after a specific request from my son,
how could I say no?
We played "monster tag",
and he giggled so hard he had to stop running at times.
And we discussed our shadows
as I pushed him on the swing.
When our shadows hid from us, and the wind picked up
it was time to head to the van for water
and to warm up a bit.
Then time to head home, where I faced this...
|The tree that needs taken down.|
Remind me to fire my little "house cleaning fairies".
But I continued to ignore that mess
and instead enjoyed more time with my boy.
I'm so glad I listened to my boy
and my heart.
This day, this special time with Evan
really made my heart glow.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
Make it special!
And for the record, the cleaning fairies never came,
but I managed to clean it all the next day.
And the tree comes down today.
