Sounds of Joy in the Morning

By meredith, October 28, 2014 11:19 am

On those rare days when I let my husband greet our son in the morning so I can lay in bed just a little bit longer and get some rest for the weary, I love what I hear. My favorite sound is the sound of the men in my life giving my son a kiss. Before you think I am stereotyping the male penchant (or lack thereof) for affection, hear me out. There is something so special about witnessing (even if only through hearing it) my husband or my Dad giving in to that urge to just kiss kiss kiss that little boy. It’s an urge I gladly give into all day every day, every chance I can get. And it brings me great joy to hear them giving into that natural instinct as well.

Then there is the sound of the pitter patter of little feet, in knowing that my little guy is running around, getting excited and happy about something or just giving into his own urges to move.

These are the sounds of joy for me. Simple. Pure. Joy.
