Small treasures

When asked by my bigger kids, to drive them and their friends somewhere .... anywhere ... my heart jumps a little at the chance.

It's rare to be invited into their world.

And because I spend so much time and energy on the younger souls of my household, I do so treasure the opportunity to get a glimpse at the interactions and the friendships of my older children.

It tells me so much more about them.  

Even when I merely sit silently in the driver's seat and observe through a rear view mirror.

Friday's trip, though a little more subdued than the usual jaunt to and from a dance or party, was telling just the same.

A rare glimpse of life's precious treasure.
