That movie-like moment after a long day. You put the broom back in its corner after sweeping the house and you give the kitchen counter one last wipe. As you sigh and walk out of the kitchen you catch sight of your husband and son sitting at the table and discussing current events and wonders of nature.

Tears prickle in your eyes. You slide your hand into your back pocket where you always keep a tissue handy. Instead of a tissue you pull out a crinkly layer of dried onion skin that your son snuck into your pocket while helping you prepare dinner. You can't help but smile.

Sometimes it's the small things.
