Through the Eyes of a Child... A Bird's Song

An unexpected text from my brother-in-law led to a smile-filled lunch at King & I Thai.  Over a plate of three sushi rolls, TJ has no shame in eating huge amounts like me, we hear a lil voice "oooo."  We turned to Mallory, my almost two-year-old niece, who was grinning ear to ear then quietly says, "bird."  TJ acknowledged the bird out the window.  Mallory wasn't happy with that; then we hear the background music.  So soft and delicate, much the same as Mallory's voice, the bird shared a solo.

What great lessons Mallory taught us...
Slow down and listen.
Be aware of your surroundings.
Beauty is everywhere.
It is not always the obvious answer.
Your voice is heard.
Share your happiness.
Let your smile light the world.
