Today I took Brooklyn to the dentist. My mom came over to watch the other kids and, since she had parked me in, I drove her car. As Brooklyn climbed out of the car she said "Mom, I love how these seat belts go back so quickly. They are so nice!" As I smiled, both inside and out, I couldn't help but think of how much this 5 year old girl inspires me. Brooklyn appreciates things that most of us don't even notice. The curtains in a hotel, tile in a lobby, sparkles on the floor of Forever21, chandeliers in a jewelry store. Sometimes I focus on the challenges of her sensitivity. The crying, the whining, the hurt feelings. Today, I was reminded of the good her sensitivity brings. Brooklyn is grateful. I hope that she stays that way. I hope that she always appreciates the beauty around her. I hope I become a little more like her.
