I have a sweet five year old boy who, when I pull into the driveway home from some errand or event, stands at the top of the steps, smiling and clapping his hands high above his head. I do wish that everyone could have the same welcome every time they arrived home. It sure melts the heart and brings a big smile.
If you can't have a five year old boy who does this, perhaps a happy, wagging dog will do. And I don't mean to brag, but I have that too. Shooeee, I am blessed.
