People stop noticing and doing these things when they get older, but
that moment when a kid grips your hand really tight when they see something new and overwhelming and scarily exciting,
that moment when a pup lays their head wherever and however closer they can to your body, their lip tugging on the material of your jeans, their teeth lazily exposed, their paw warming a circular area on your thigh,
that moment your little sister defers to your opinion,
that moment your computer screen is covered in licks,
that moment that you realize despite the 3 jobs, 4 rejections, and 1500 options, you are a person whose little things matter, and whose big things will either get solved, pass, or be traded in for smaller (bigger) things.
