Her eyes not opened, she answered “I am”. He replied “No you’re the big girl.” She pouted. He came around the bed, leaning over and squeaked a kiss in her ear. “I would wag my tail if I had one.” she said. “Ah that’s the nicest thing you’ve said to me.” She looked at him, and his eyes were glistening, even after all these years he still can make her smile at the little things in life. Life is good.
