Happiness: Day 3

This kid? This kid makes me happy.

Griffin has been the biggest trooper through all this nasty cracked elbow mess. He is strong, he is brave, and he is fiercely independent even with one bum arm! And when he's done for the day, tired of being all those things, he melts into my arms with a trust that both honours and staggers me, to let me be the strong brave one.

And that trust? Makes me want to be the best person I can possibly be for him.

Making him happy makes me happy.

That's really the heart of it all, isn't it? I feel the same way about my little one. What a great post.
