My weekend was I what would quantify as an ordinarily extraordinary. I never realized I had so many little surprises that were in store for me. Not that I was cleaning the house and realized that I just won a lottery ticket and you are actually reading a blog of a millionaire (though I love the sound of this :-)). The truth is you might find it absurd but I always find great happiness on small things. As I rearranged our living room yesterday I realized that our hibiscus plant sitting at the corner for years have finally given us a beautiful red flower. It was just hard to imagine that after years of not bearing any flower this day finally happened. There was even a day we thought of dumping the plant long time ago.
As my husband and I were marveling at our hibiscus flower our daughter approached toward us crawling. Then all of a sudden she stood up with her two feet and smiled at us and applauded. Alright it didn’t last that long about 4 seconds. But could you just imagine how happy it made us that she did stood up for the first time without holding on to something. We just realized that she just turned tenth month old yesterday. Those little happy moments are priceless.
