The Best Gift
When my little man opened his scroll from the Advent gnome yesterday he found a little note inviting him to a lunch date with me. Little did I know when I wrote the note that our morning plans for our weekly nature adventure with friends would fall apart, leaving Reece and I hitting the trails on our own.
We spent the morning at a local trail, catching water drops as they fell from branches, wandering, listening...it was so quiet, and just enjoying the peace. At times he held my hand, and I held his, as we chatted away, him asking many questions about animals and nature, and me just listening and smiling at his curiosity. We returned to the car a little wet, and hungry and headed out for our lunch date to one of our favourite spots. The food was good, and the company even better.
I honestly could not have planned this day better, and while I was disappointed when our friends couldn't make it for our nature adventure, what I received in return was a joy filled day with my little man. Really, it was the best gift a mama could ask for.
