Portrait Project – 21/52



“If he thought at all, but I don’t believe he ever thought, it was that he and his shadow, when brought near each other, would join like drops of water, and when they did not he was appalled. He tried to stick it on with soap from the bathroom, but that also failed.” Peter Pan by James M Barrie

I could not help but thinking of Peter Pan and his shadow while watching Ms. 6 (and her shadow) twirling around, jumping and dancing one fine afternoon after school. It was like watching two little girls dancing from where I sat. There was no music. She was just happy and had a lot of energy to burn. She felt so much joy she probably thought she would burst if she didn’t do anything about it. It’s how she rolls, and isn’t that just so wonderful to watch.

Day 59 #Project365

59-365 coffee bean

Little things can make people happy every day. For me, coffee is included in this category. Twice a day served in a big mug, bang! instant happiness. Look how pretty the coffee beans are, all ready to make me happy!

Other little things that make me happy are little conversations I have with my kids. This one I had this morning still makes me smile.

Ms.4’s teacher at school always commented on how happy and energetic she looks in the morning. Every day. Happy everyday, that’s what the teacher said.

This morning I asked her as we walked to her classroom. (She wasn’t walking she was skipping while holding my hand)
Me: You look happy this morning. Are you happy?
Ms.4: YES!
Me: Why are you so happy?
Ms.4: Mama! (rolling her eyes), I am 4 years old! I am growing, of course I’m happy!
Then she shook her head at me as if she couldn’t believe how silly I was that I needed to ask.
