like when a kid on my caseload points for the first time, or says "Go", or waves and says hi without any help. It makes me want to jump up and down and cry tears of joy.
or when you go get coffee at the place on the corner in front of our new apartment and the sweet little owner lady is so happy to see a new face and when you leave says "see you tomorrow!"
or i get to sit at a table in a dining room with my husband for a meal and then go to ANOTHER room to watch one of our favorite show (parks and rec) on hulu before bed.
or you realize that you're doing a good job at your job and that your boss is happy about what you're doing and is somewhat impressed. (i can be insecure sometimes)
or you spend your last night cleaning your old place drinking beer and getting into a passionate conversation about politics, the economy and social norms with your landlord...who distracts you from cleaning until 10:30 pm and ends up on his hands and knees scrubbing floors with you.
Just little things that mean a lot.
