Quiet: Gratitude at a Different Volume

I am grateful, every day, for my Little K and the things he has taught me about littler children in general.  Not all toddlers run around giggling all day, for example.  Some are born serious, thoughtful, and quiet.  Some prefer wandering around with a map and an inquisitive smile to shouting exuberantly at every new site.

That would be my sweet Little K.  At the zoo yesterday, while his brother charged ahead sharing every sight at the top of his lungs, Little K carried the map, made sure he knew which animals we were missing, and quietly asked me, “This is where I’m headed.  Are you coming, too?”
