Pure Joy

This is the reaction I got from Frankie when asked the question "Do you want a fruit rollup?"

Now, I consider myself a happy person and I have an infinite amount of joy when I think about how lucky I am to have such amazing and beautiful family and friends.  But, I do not remember the last time I expressed that joy as wholeheartedly and unadulterated as this. 

So, at least today, I am going to try it. Join me and say to hell with being an adult and conserved and let others truly know how happy you are about something... especially how happy you are to see them. I am sure it will bring a smile to their face. Have a great day everyone!


  1. Way too cute for words! She's absolutely precious - to be able to express that kind of joy over the simplest of pleasures.

    As an aside, I have been know to have a similar reaction when offered peanut M&Ms - they bring me joy.

    Great photo of your sweet little girl.

  2. thank´s for that suggestion to reflect!

  3. A great idea .. and seeing her expression made me smile BIG ..

  4. She is adorable! Kids sure know how to appreciate and show joy at the little things in life. I get reminded of that by my own three monkeys many times. Great idea - I'll do it!

  5. I love these from the last many days, Rich. Love what you're doing with the whole thing.
