Happiness is sitting next to my nearly five year old little boy who is lately obsessed with perler beads, and work on my own perler beads project while he works on his own, with his favorite music playing in the background 💕 Both of us were fully present in our own personal space bubbles, and deeply connected in our common interest in expressing ourselves creatively. It’s hard for me as a mother of three to get this kind of uninterrupted 1:1 time with one kid. I consider it to be a rare and precious gift to me from the universe when the stars line up for something like this. Luckily for me, I now have the wisdom to realize that it is the simple yet magical moments like these that enrich my life and fill me with purpose. So, thank you, universe, for this random gift on a busy week night 🙏🏼 .
My kids are all obsessed with perler beads these days to varying degrees (more on this later). I am also getting obsessed with them along with my kids because I feel that it’s the right thing for me to do at this time. Last night, this same little guy whose silent but deep presence I enjoyed at the craft table, came to me excitedly, asked me to close my eyes, held my hand, walked me into a dark room, carefully slipped a glow in the dark perler bead bracelet that he made for me with his own little hands onto my wrist, and screamed ‘surprise’. My heart exploded with joy, ofcourse. So blessed!
