Photo-A-Day: Someone Who Makes You Happy

My two boys. Granted, I cheated and took this photo on Sunday at church, but it was a moment that filled my heart with joy and I had to capture it then and there.

My son was one of those surprise gifts from God. I thought I was done having children, but He had other ideas — and I’m so glad He did. This little boy touches my heart in a way no-one else does. He opens doors like a little gentleman, brings me flowers from the garden, often gives me spontaneous kisses and cuddles, and is constantly helpful. He also has a good dose of mischief and a lovely sense of humour.

And my husband. He makes me laugh. I admire his passion — when he believes in something, he really believes in it — 100%. There is nothing two-faced about him, what you see is what you get. He also has a twisted sense of humour, and has written many a silly poem, and sung many a silly song. You never know what he’ll come out with next. I honour him now, too, because he has just come through six tortuous years of depression, and is now getting stronger every day as he presses into God.

So, this moment, when my son wanted to emulate his father as we worshipped, one small hand on top of his dad’s, joy welled up inside me. It was one of those moments that made me melt.

Do you have moments like that? Who brings joy to your life?
