You know those things that just make you smile? Not the big things, but small, simple pleasures.
Like a cup of Chris' hot coffee, clean sheets on a Sunday, the way Granby sighs like a human, A Tribe Called Quest's Electric Relaxation, getting a front row parking spot, how Eloise says the word "yes" with so much conviction.
Our days are so full that I am constantly caught up in the next thing on my to do list. Sometimes I even go to bed feeling a little glum. But in the morning, no matter what happened the day before, Eloise greets me with cuddles, smiles, giggles and kisses. It's her way of saying, "Today, Mama, is a new day." This is by far my simplest pleasure of all.
