Leibster award – wooohoo very excited!

Gratitude first Firstly I would like to thank Mark from holding together the jello for nominating me for the Leibster Award.  (does a little curtsey) What is the Liebster Award? When I first started blogging I saw these awards and thought maybe they were a joke or not ‘real’, but what makes something real? I’ve looked…

A gift from a child ~ random moments of delight

So, this is my second week of attempting the “Random Moments of Delight” challenge.

Last week I ended up covering something that happened to my eldest son.

This week, something just so happened with my youngest son.

My eldest is very sensitive, he has an amazing ability to be empathic and know when something is wrong.  I think that is a gift.

My youngest son keeps things more to himself.  He doesn’t openly show deeper feelings,only once in a blue moone, always surprising me, but then what should I expect from a 7yr old boy.

However the other day I was lying on my mat, stretching my back out.  I hear the front door open, husband and youngest came through.  Noise erupted throughout the hallway, no change there 🙂

Then there was the sound of footsteps, I knew it was my youngests from the lightness.

Then nothing, the footsteps stopped outside my bedroom, yet I hear nothing, could not see him

“what is he up to now?” I wondered.

Then he appeared, with a chocolate heart in his hand, presented to me “mummy an early valentines present, because I love you!”

Evidence pictured below.

Warm heart and big smile….

And, oh boy it was delicious, pure chocoholic delight, not a biscuit, a pudding almost, soft moist chocolate inside, and yes I allowed all a nibble, but only a small one!

Unconditional love

“Of them all, it was the true love. Of them all, it was the best. That other sumptuous love which made one drunk, which one longed for, envied, believed in, that was not life. It was what life was seeking; it was a suspension of life. But to be close to a child, for whom one spent everything, whose life was protected and nourished by one's own, to have that child beside one, at peace, was the real, the deepest, the only joy.”― James Salter, Light Years
