    With the days being mostly gray, I need a little manufactured sunlight. I am going to post about a good deed or something that made me or a someone else happy.

    Today, my son was not feeling 100%. We stayed at home mostly to let him rest. Finally, I told him I had a surprise. We cleared up part of the living room where the surprise was going to be. Then I brought it up from the basement. When I opened the package his eyes went wide and a big smile crossed his face.

    It was an O Scale Electric Train set. My son loves trains, especially passenger trains. We quickly set it up. He played and played and played (with supervision of course).

    It made his day and when out of the blue he said he had the best mommy and daddy in the world, well, it made me feel good too.

    I had been waiting about a year to do this. Today I surprised my son and received much more in return.

    There’s not much that’s better for your soul than childlike joy.

    We may argue the political stuff, but you are soooo right.

    Today I am choosing to not be freaked out by all the crime lately in our neighborhood, and this is making me happy :)

    I’m with you on that, Lisa!

    I think some people’s perception of the crime rate is exaggerated. That’s actually kind of understandable, so soon after these events happen.

    As a lifetime Wesseattleite, I’ve seen a lot of changes.

    One thing I don’t think will ever change is the overall strong sense of community, and the fact that most Wesseattleites are at a minimum decent folks, and many strongly leaning toward being exceptional examples of humanity anbd kindness.

    Today the foster dog and I lay down in a sunny spot on the couch and listened to good music for about half an hour. It was bliss.

    Today I played four square with my son after school and earlier that day he was rewarded by a teacher for a good deed.

    With 4 kids I have a lot of memories. I especially love the 1 to 4 year ages. The unconditional love of a child is priceless. I started singing twinkle twinkle little star and itsy bitsy spider to my two year old. Now whenever I come home she runs to the door saying “dada home”, jumps up and says twinkle stars. Those feelings can’t be replaced. It doesn’t take Ipads, phones, xbox games. It just takes a little time to interact with your kids.

    Yesterday I was driving home listening to music in my car with my two girls. The oldest (4 years old) said something to me toward the end of a song that I couldn’t understand, so I turned down the music and asked her to repeat herself. She asked me how someone made such a beautiful song. I glanced back and noticed she was crying.

    I then got to spend the next 20 minutes pulled over on the side of the freeway during rush hour having one of the most amazing conversations with my little girl about beauty and our emotions’ inability to handle it in it’s purest forms. The busy world melted away around us. I can tell I’ll never forget that moment as long as I’m walking this planet.

    These moments are what it’s all about.
