It’s the little things…

Today I am grateful for the little things that have touched my heart this week.

My son came to me with this drawing this morning:



It’s of his doggy friend Bandit “singing from his heart”.

Those words really touched my soul.  It’s so true – dogs really do speak from their hearts.

And each night this week he has surprised me with something kind that he has done.

One night he snuck into my room after I put him to bed, to put a torch on my bedside table.  Each night he takes his favourite blue torch to bed.  Just in case he needs it.  That night I had offered him my torch instead.  So after I tucked him in, he snuck into my room to give me his blue one.  So I would have one if I needed it.

Another night I went into my room to go to bed to find he’d picked out some pyjamas for me, and laid them on my bed:



And every night without fail, when he brushes his teeth, he also gets my toothbrush ready.  He puts toothpaste on it, and leaves it for me as a surprise.

Today I am grateful for all these beautiful little things – and more.

Happy Sunday everyone ♥

  1. That is so precious! My husband and I have been married for 18 years. We still do the whole toothbrush thing for each other as an act of kindness. It truly is the little things and the daily acts of respect that nurture our love for one another. If your son is doing this now….can you imagine the type of man he will be???
