Simple Sweetness

A rose can say "I love you", orchids can enthrall, but a weed bouquet in a chubby fist, yes, that says it all. - Author Unknown

I looked down into the eyes of my "adopted" nephew to find this tiny flower in his hand. His seven year old voice said, "This is for you."

My insides turned to mush. My heart filled with joy. My day became beautiful by that one, simple and sweet act. He then wrapped his arms around my waist for a hug.

I think I melted into a puddle right there at his bus stop.

It truly is the little things in life that mean so much. Tiny, special moments. Kind gestures. A half- second acknowledgement to let you know that you really matter.

Simple sweetness that reminds me how very blessed I am.
