The Day's Re-Cap, through little eyes

Every night when I am putting Iman to bed, I make sure to have a conversation. I ask her about her day, and the things that happened. And through her words, I get to see the little things that she found important. Although we spent the day together, and I saw the things that she saw, and I did the things that she did, our perspectives often differ. I really enjoy hearing her point of view. She recounts simple things, things that made her happy.

In the weeks that I have been doing this, I have noticed that not once does she mention the upsetting things that happened that day. She remembers her life for all the good that it contained. And as her mom, it makes me happy to know that in her thoughts, the world is a wonderful place to live in, and in her life she has all the contentment anyone could need.
