My son loves birds, so for Christmas we bought him a bird feeder. After weeks of rain, we finally had a chance to hang it. We set it in a place where we could see the feeder from our family room couch.

In the quiet of the morning, before everyone was up and the activity of the day began, my son and I watched several little birds bouncing back and forth from the tree to the feeder, enjoying a morning snack. We giggled together as they enjoyed the feeder and had fun trying to figure out what types of birds they were. We even found a great website for bird identification and enjoyed learning about our local birds.

In the moment, I realized just how much these little moments count. Create them, cherish them, remember them. Happiness can be found in small moments.
