Reverb10-Day 27

December 27 – Ordinary Joy Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year? (Author: Brené Brown)
I was at my sister's house a few weeks ago and I was playing with my niece Diana. We were writing and drawing on the white board in the playroom. I asked her to spell my name on the board and she asked me how I spelled it. Well, I knew she could spell "Au Bob" but I wasn't sure if she could spell Michelle so I thought I would see if I could trick her into saying my name. She's been talking for 3 years now and I have never heard her say "Michelle".
I spelled out Michelle, letter by letter and asked her what it spelled. She said "Michelle." Something so simple really made my heart swell 100 times. It was completely and utterly joyful and if she calls me Au Bob for the rest of my life, I'll be okay with that but hearing her say Michelle was pretty sweet.
