Simple Joys

I got a call today from my little 8 yr. old granddaughter. We talked about her day and she tells me what's going on in second grade. She told me "today was "lucky tray" day at the cafeteria, and if you got the lucky tray, you got a cookie. And I won the cookie today grammy!"

So we had a whole conversation about cookies, especially chocolate chip, and lots of giggles about eating cookies first, before broccoli! And I told her she had inspired the painting of the day.

Yeah, it was a simple thing, but somehow important also. Little things ARE important, little moments, small triumphs shared - they are the stuff of life. I think we'd all be better off if, every afternoon at 3, we all sat down together for cookies and milk. So, that's what I'm doing right now. Having that glass of milk and cookies. (this was a quick sketch: the milk is still cold!) Before supper, before brocolli. And they are good. And I'm smiling.
