August Happiness Challenge -- Day 23

Today's happiness -- Playing with a shoelace. I knew back in June, when Reynaldo and I entered the last chapter in his life, that we would have good days and bad days. Today was a good day. He came into the bedroom to make sure I was awake and then stood on the headboard to let the fan blow into his face. He crashed a Zoom meeting for the first time in weeks. He followed me from room to room, just to be near me. Best of all, he played. He was unable to capture and vanquish the shoelace, but he tried.

Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.
