The simplicity of a few words ~ the enormity of its meaning ~ random moments of delight!

Sharing a random moment of delight ~ the simplicity of a few words ~ the enormity of it’s meaning!

I enjoy this challenge, if that is what you call it, simply because it makes me think of something lovely, good, inspiring, or just something that brings a smile to my face, which can only be good right?

There is something special about simplicity

Something simple, a crumpled up note, a few words can mean everything especially when randomly written by a child just out of a pure emotion at the time.

So what happened?

My youngest came  up to me the other day after having been sat at the kitchen table, unusually squirreling away at something with a pencil and paper.  I say this, because getting him to write anything is a huge challenge, and I know now why as he has been diagnosed with severe dyslexia.  He clasped the paper in his hand, presenting it to me with a gentle expression of vulnerability upon his face, saying “mummy open this”.  The paper was folded with the edges to meet each other, kind of like an envelope.  He waited and watched, when I read the words he smiled and gave me a hug.  What more could a mother want?

I love you

      Yes most definately. I see everything now he does through different eyes, realizing how things have been so different from what one just takes for granted, that token actually taking so much more effort than just being an easy scribble 🙂
