In the details
When I went in to turn out Henry's lamp tonight, I noticed the assortment of belongings on his nightstand...(he had gone and collected each little thing after I put him to bed 'cause when I kissed him good night and turned his lamp on, it was just an empty plot of white press-board.)
* the paper airplane I made him today
* the pumpkin he picked out at the super market (incidentally, he picked a similar one, only tinier, for his little sister; hers was carefully placed atop a little shelf in her room while we were putting her to bed.)
* and a little glass of water (he always gets thirsty in the night).
For some reason his little collection really got to my heart tonight.
And I need to remember it.
