Gives so much pleasure. I found a couple of new Disney children's books at the weekend and I immediately thought of my friend's little girl who is a delightful child and so enthusiastic about anything and everything so I took them into work with me on Monday. (Mum is one of my bosses) and a good friend. Mum was over the moon with the books and she knew her daughter would be too. That evening she sent me a lovely photo of her reading the book in bed and told me that she was so excited with the surprise.
Yesterday out of the blue I received a photo with a drawing on the back from her. I was so chuffed. She is under three years old but really lovely. But the greatest prize for me was seeing a little girl being a little girl enjoying her childhood and using her imagination and taking pleasure in books which in today's day and age is exceptional. Bedtime apparently is a favourite time of day as she gets read to by either her mum or dad or her brother.
Its always the simple things that bring so much pleasure.
