confetti & sunshine.

what do you do when the littlest man in your life walks away from you, in rain boots & a batman cape, pondering, “i don’t know. . . .i don’t know,” about whether or not batman runs, & everything in you is confetti on new year’s?

what do you do when the small girl, six-ish, walks over in her blue-red-yellow sundress, puts her nose right up to yours, & asks, with sunlight lathered on her face like make-up if she could please have another cookie?

what do you do when the tallest boy makes a hotel out of his bedroom, complete with doorbell & welcome mat, & invites his brother & sister in for a snack at the laundry basket table with a flashlight candle?

what do you do when He extends armloads of goodness & love & mercy down to you, like so much springtime in march?

you smile & say “yes, thank you.”
