However, life is so simple for the little ones around us. Tonight, as I tucked my little Kaesey Bear in, he quietly whispered that today had been his best day. Now, I took a moment to think back on the day. It had been fun. A play group and lunch at Carls Jr. followed by a nap and movie with Grandpa, Grandma and the Uncles.
“You know why it was my best day Mommy” came the cute, sleepy little voice, “Because Grandpa gave me a penny.” From underneath his pillow, he produced a small wooden box and inside was a large silver coin that Grandpa had given him at the movies. Now, the coin was a Tongan coin and had no monetary value to any of us. But, to a small guy of three, having been given a penny by Grandpa, that was the most valuable treasure in the world. Thank you Grandpa for the penny.
