So, I kind of have two things going on in tonight's post.
After my grandma's death two years ago, a whole stash (enough to fill a whole room) of ungiven gifts were found among her posessions. She was always a generous woman and wanted to have a supply on hand, so she always had something to give. We were allowed to go in and pick out items for each member of our family. I was pregnant with Baby B at the time, so I wanted to get him something as well, so he would have a connection to this wonderful woman he'd never meet in this life.
As soon as I saw these overalls, I knew. There was a great chance they are exactly what she would have given me for him (along with a beautiful homemade quilt, like the ones his older siblings received). I suppose it's a simple thing, but every time he wears them, it's a Joyful Moment. I love my grandma.
After the past few weeks I've been having, seeing the happiness on my face as I listen to Little M was another Joyful Moment.
As was this impromptu "family photo". Once HH gets started with the camera, he can't seem to stop!
Anyway, the Joyful Moment I intended to post before finding these cute pictures taken by HH this evening has to do with volunteering in Sweet P's classroom for the first time. I didn't get to do anything with her, but instead tested some of the other kids on their reading and then helped two little boys who are a little behind. They were so darling and sweet. It's such a wonderful age. They are still so innocent and trusting and open.
I'll be honest, usually I struggle with other people's children. Horrible, I know. But today it wasn't that way at all. I had such a wonderful time and it was truly a Joyful Moment helping them.
Sweet P was more than a little disappointed that I didn't get to help her, however. Hopefully, there will be more opportunity for that in the coming weeks.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments and a chance to see that happiness on your own face!
