The piano? Played with incredible joy.
A new Santa? Amazement. Happiness. Joy.
Helping grandma make the waffles. She stirred the flour with joy!
The teddy bear joined her to rock by the Christmas tree. Amazing joy!
I often find myself caught up in the over rush, over tired, over done sides of 'the season,' worrying - obsessing sometimes - about what has to get done next and whether I'll get it all done - and wondering why I don't enjoy it. Spending time with Hannah brings me into the moment, reminds me that here and now, each moment is a moment for joy. Looking at it all as new - through the eyes of a two year old - I experience the joy.
Thank you, Hannah. What a gift!
