The Little Things
I am a lover of the little things.
A small gesture can make my day brighten. My favorite part of a rainstorm is when the sun peaks out in the middle. It's amazing to me how the smallest ray of sunshine illuminates the sky.
Today, Carson brought me my much-needed little thing.
I had to take him to piano lessons during the middle of a serious thunderstorm. We arrived at his teacher's house just as she arrived home from an afternoon of teaching lessons at the church.
I dropped him off, told him his dad would bring him home, and I started to back out.
But, something stopped me.
I looked up to see him running into the carport to avoid the rain. Then, I saw him come around the car to ask if his teacher needed him to carry anything. She must have said yes, because I saw him take a plastic bag from her.
The interaction brought me the biggest smile. My son was being a gentleman. Just because. He didn't know that I was looking. There was no prize to be won. He just did it.
