Millie, my daughter, has become my little happiness alarm.  She knows immediately when I am feeling sad or angry.  When she feels it, she says, "are you happy?".  She asks me this question with a big smile.  If I say no, she gives me a hug.  One time she sang me a song to get me happy.  Of course, as soon as she asks me if I'm happy, a big smile comes across my face.  I feel like she puts me in check.  It's like she is there to remind me that the small frustrations do not matter and I need to stay present.  Everyday I am in awe and in amazement of what this soul, who happens to be my daughter in this lifetime, can teach me.  I wonder what other lessons we have taught each other in other lifetimes and I am curious as to what lessons we still have for each other.
