One night at bedtime...
Isaac and Kenley stood before the sink brushing their teeth. He lifted his toothbrush up to let the water run over it. Kenley lifted hers too, but was unable to reach the running water.
She looked at her big brother. Holding out her toothbrush she asked "P'ease?" Without a word Isaac took her toothbrush, held it under the water, then returned it to her hand.
"You," came her abbreviated gratitude.
"You're welcome," he replied and they continued to brush their teeth together.
I sat there on the edge of the bathtub brushing my teeth, taking in the sweet exchange, so grateful for these beautiful kids.
Sometimes all is right with the world; I witnessed it from the edge of my bathtub.
