What a Treat
|Partially obstructed views|
I will be using this picture for YEARS to come.
This will be quick. Particularly because I should be doing other things like preparing for my in-laws to arrive and writing a post for BeTween Books. Hint: only one of those things is going to happen tonight. My in-laws arrive tomorrow so I bet you know which one I'll finish. But I wanted to write this while it was still warm and fuzzy and full of goodness.

But, tonight. Tonight was different. Tonight my ears know how to hear better. My eyes leaked a bit more because of it, but my ears heard what they had been wanting to hear for years. They heard "Trick or Treat!" They heard "Hi! Happy Halloween!" They heard "Come on, Brother!" They heard "Hey! Wait, Sissy!" They heard "Thank you!" They heard "Oh, I love my costume!" They heard "Mommy, I having so much fun on Halloween!" And even without all those words, the smiles and giggles would have let my ears hear what I've been hoping for. Tonight, as my kids ran around the neighborhood getting candy they can't eat in costumes they'll never wear again, my ears heard happy. What a treat that was to hear.
