"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." Marcel Proust
I've been thinking on this quote during this season of Thanksgiving. I've been thinking about people who make me happy and thinking about being grateful for them.
We spent Thanksgiving over at Sweet Husband's sister's house and Kellen got to hang out with some of the people who make him happy...his cousins. He enjoys being in their presence. Just after the Thanksgiving feast, Kellen was getting tired and needed to go home. Everyone at the table got up and lined up for a goodbye hug from Kellen. I was touched...Kellen is having an impact.
Hamming it up with the cousins.
Today as we were leaving church Kellen went to say good-bye to one of his favorite people on the planet, Terry. At home we call him Rock Star Terry because he sings in our church band and he looks like a rock star. As Kellen was giving Terry a bear hug, Terry said, "You make me happy, buddy."...and I melted just a little. Grateful. Happy.
