The Great Big Little Things that Bring Me Joy: Part Eleven

Friends who meet me and my children at Six Flags.

Watching my daughter chat and interact with those friends at Six Flags. Watching her just be a little girl with one of her best little buds -- so happy and carefree.

Riding rides with my friend's son -- watching his joy and listening to this amazing boy describe and SHARE his excitement with me -- and knowing what an amazing thing that is for any child on the spectrum.

Riding rides with my son and having him stare deep into my eyes with an expression that tells me exactly how glad he is to be there with me.

Knowing that all of this is still part of my life, even though so much has changed.

Being able to enjoy such a wonderful day with such wonderful people. And being able to laugh at all of the crazy, unexpected things that happen along the way.
