the weight of happiness

It does not matter how much extra activity this Christmas season entails, daily trips are still made to visit with my mother. Her ability to be understood or to understand what we are saying may depend on any given day, but we have had some very good visits with her.

This afternoon I crawled in the bed beside her.
She said, "I'm happy now."

Sometimes the small things say everything.
