A day when everything seemed to come together, where
it's as good as it gets. Doesn't have to be a giant day or
even a perfect day, it's just for you a really great day. It
makes no difference if you have just begun surfing, if
you are Kelly Slater, or some seasoned "old guy", great
days happen to us all.
I had a great day yesterday. Simon my grandson called
me grandpa for the first time! At 22 month he's developed
quite a vocabulary in both Spanish and English. Seems
that every day for the past months he's been letting us know
he's mastered new words, new phrases. What a joy to hear
him say something he's never said before, to watch as he
realizes that others understand him, that he's actually
communicating. The "grandpa thing" was different I think.
I'll bet he's been able to say it for a while now but he's been
playing with me and holding out. He just wasn't ready.
Prior to yesterday when-ever someone asked him who I
was, what my name was he just smiled a coy smile, a knowing
smile. But for whatever reason yesterday was the day.
He decided to say it. My day was made, my joy incredible.
Such a little thing meant so much.
What little things mean a lot to you? Do you seek them
out, nurture them? Whether it's having a great session,
making a personal change, connecting with a friend, or simply
living with the aloha spirit, great days can come from
little things. Make it a great day in and out of the surf.
