An Affinity for Heels

I'm so blessed to be loved like I am by little people- namely, my nieces and nephews. I mean, I haven't seen Maya in months, and it is like we never parted. On the drive to Queen Creek, she grabs my arms, and proceeds to kiss my fingers and arm for most of the journey. There is nothing like a little person to make you feel good.

Later, when playing upstairs, I took off my shoes, so as not to injure anyone. I see Maya- tearing off her pink cowboy boots in favor of my heels. Then, even though this is probably her first time in such high heels, she proceeds to go down the stairs! The child is a prodigy! I mean, I didn't have that kind of balance until I was like... twenty-five. She went up the stairs, too, and when she hit level ground, she started running in my heels. 

Then, she substituted my name into a song she learned on TV. "Tiffy... she's a little girl in a great big world..." and sang it on the way home. I have the cleverest, most brilliant little people in my life. 

"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it."
