The door flew open before I even reached the entrance and I was greeted by a handsome young boy who had a sparkle in his eye and a grin from ear to ear. This little guy screamed out my name so loud and gave me a hug so tight it filled my soul with so much love. He grabbed my hand and led me to the kitchen stopping along the way to show me the cool minion cake, cookies, and all the decorations. My nephew was on cloud nine! He announced my arrival as we entered the kitchen that was filled with all the loved ones who gathered to spend the afternoon together to share in the celebration parents, sibling, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. In a matter of minutes, he ran around the house ringing a bell to announce the opening of gifts and cake. It was so cute and his excitement was priceless.
Watching my nephew’s excitement today brought me so much joy and a reminder of the important things in life.
