Feathers

We have down filled pillows on our couch.
Every now and then a feather sneaks out and ends up on the couch or floating around on the floor.

Feather

One day, Michael tickled Eva's face with the stray feather.
Across her forehead, down her nose, round and round her cheeks and under her chin.

I never find stray feathers anymore.
Eva finds them before we have a chance.

Holding Feather

She brings you the feather, tucks it in your hands.
She curls up in your lap, turns her face up to yours, closes her eyes...
smiles and waits.

Waits for you to tickle her face.
Then she takes the little feather and tickles you back.

Forehead feather

Little grins and giggles...
smiles and lap snuggles.

Simple moments we could have never imagined.
Moments we will always remember.

Nessa, you're killing me with this story. Eva's little ritual sounds like something right out of a movie. I hope you've gotten this on video!

That is adorable! My son will purposefully fall on the floor and start laughing when he wants you to tickle him :)

Moments to treasure are all too often moments overlooked or those whose joy is stolen by busyness. I love that the beauty in these moments have captured your attention and written themselves on your heart. Beautiful.

Visiting from Chatting at the Sky...

Wow, how I loved this read. With every word, I thought of my own little man, now 8. One of the things I absolutely, positively love about him is his "belly laugh". You know the kind. It's like music to my ears.

Thank you for sharing.
