PAD Challenge Day 4

Unexpected Simple Pleasures

Delightful things

My first Mother’s Day – my son wearing
An “I Love You Mommy” button on his nightgown
when I go to lift him from his crib

A surprise party on our 25th anniversary
filled with family members, each a special joy

Meeting a cousin I never knew who is a writer and
now influences my writing self

A friend request on facebook
from someone I haven’t seen in over twenty years

Beach glass – a secret treasure from across the ocean

A student who reconnects me with her grandma’s cousin
who was my best friend in eight grade

The bone in the grass that my lab discovers
with pure joy all over again

a pleasant conversation with a stranger
