Just Ask Sonya…

After attending a Dallas Wings game (Womens National Basketball Association) we went to Chipotles for dinner.

We sat eating dinner when 3 police officers walked in the door.
Sonya immediately said, “Well hello sir!” to each officer as he passed her.
A short time later a family (wearing Wings t-shirts) entered the restaurant and Sonya immediately noticed and spoke to them about the game.

Her heart, kindness and openness to everyone that crosses her path always makes me smile. I think she surprises people because joy naturally pours from her.

In this time of hate and anger we need more Sonya. We need more people willing to open their hearts and share love. We don’t have to know everyone’s name, or politics, or job, or religion.
What we need to know is that everyone that crosses our path is human and deserves to be treated with kindness and respect…and if you don’t believe me just ask Sonya. IMG_3266

Here and Now

I am not sure if I have ever met another person more capable of living in the “Here and Now” than Sonya. She has a truly free spirit that is not hindered by the expectations of others. img_4704

Sonya has been known to burst into song while dining in public, walking down the street and always in the shower. She will break out in dance whether she is in our living room, a crowded mall or on top of a mountain.img_5151

Sonya shares her joy and freely passes out the love.img_3106

If Sonya feels the urge to sing, she sings. If she feels the urge to hug, she hugs and if she feels the urge to dance…well you better believe she will dance!dsc_0155

The Daily Post challenged us to share “a moment” using our media of choice. obviously I tweaked the challenge slightly and decided to share the joy of every moment I get to spend with Sonya…because even the quiet and peaceful moments spent with Sonya are moments  I cherish.img_4155

Pure Joy….

I got home from my ride tonight and Tina was watching the original Grease with the girls. I must say this is one of the few movies I can watch over and over. So I join them.
Sonya danced throughout the movieIMG_2198

and if she wasn’t dancing she was singing along…IMG_2164

This girl brings such joy to our lives…

I am grateful I get to hang out with her, laugh with her and occasionally she lets me sing with her!

Sorry for the poor photo quality….it wasn’t a planned activity and I just grabbed my iPhone.
