"A smile remains the most inexpensive gift I can bestow on anyone and yet its powers can vanquish kingdoms." — Og Mandino

Time, it’s either too fast or too slow, but when it’s just right, it’s just precious!

My 3 older ones are mostly on their own busy doing what they enjoy doing. Most of the times, I'm not even privy on their plans for the day or night.

Luckily for me, my littlest crumbcatcher is still a single-digit little guy (well, not for long…) who still needs me!

This week I got my fixed: being in the City with my little guy who doesn’t mind walking in the freezing cold, hand-in-hand in the streets of Manhattan - and it's doesn't bother him whether it's 2 blocks or 10 blocks!

We headed to two different casting studios – a great excuse to bond with the little guy!

As I watched him interact with adults I just can’t help smile and thank G-d for giving me the most precious gift: my children and their smiles.

Sometimes, time seems so fast that you feel like nothing was getting done;

Sometimes, time seems so slow that you can’t seem to get the big push to get anything done;

But then there are times when time is just right!

Today is just right…

Just perfect…
Just me and my sweet little guy!

As he said, "Have a good day" to new people he met that day - be it on the train, the vendor on the street or the casting director, I feel that today is just perfect.

"Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself."  - Og Mandino

Have a great week everyone and keep smiling :)
