Walking with you mom
When we hold hands
Sometimes when the waves are big
Riding bike on the new road
A little jog
"You know mom, those things are the things that make me happy. Now you make a list, it can be really long.", he tells me. I begin to say a couple things and the more and more I say the happier and happier I became. I think it's true, the things we focus on take over. We kept trading turns saying a thing or two that makes us happy, by the time we got to the edge of the rocks our list had become pretty enormous and I forgot what mood I must have been in that needed me to ask a 6yr old for advice on happy. Then, he says, "I change my mind, I'm actually awesome, not just happy"...
6yr olds might be the smartest people on Earth.
