My Joy for this week

is there any thing more joyful than this? watching it, brings a lump to my throat and tears to my eyes.


my grandson Harry [not quite 3], helping his brother Charlie [18mths old] to eat his breakfast...
[click the arrows in the right hand corner to make full screen and turn on the sound.. you will hear a sound of Bell Birds.. a native small bird of Australia.. only found in pockets of certain areas. we are blessed to have them near us]

How sweet and loving Harry is -- patting Charlie's head, getting the food on the spoon and then letting Charlie navigate the path to his mouth. And how adorable that Charlie looks at his brother as if to say, "I could use a little help now."

I find JOY! in so many things that small children do. It all comes so natural for them.

That is so sweet! I love the way Harry patted Charlie's head and helped him with the spoon. He's a good big brother.

So very cute!!! No wonder you get a lump in your throat!

We have the odd time like this with my sons little girls but most of the time they fight which makes the cute times so much more precious!!

I cant believe Harry is almost three! Seems like just yesterday when he arrived. I couldnt hear the Bell Birds. :( I read about your picnic also. It's so cool that you and Dutch Husband can just pick up and make a wonderful day out of anything. Your attitude is always so good. xoxoxo
