Often times I take forgranted all my little Carly has to offer. When there are three other kids around, her high octane energy wears me down and I have a hard time putting a positive spin on it.
This afternoon, I was able to escape with the firecracker. Just the two of us. How sweet it was. When she was dancing up and down the aisles of the grocery store, it didn't seem to bother me as much. Instead I just watched and smiled. I didn't have other wandering kids around and one sitting in the cart crying. She is full of joy.
It was contagious. I am grateful for her vivacious personality and constant love.
