Today was very uneventful, yet I found just the perfect moment to write about. As I turned the corner into my development, I thought I saw something shiny in the air. I wasn’t sure if I really saw something or if the sun was playing tricks on me.
As I got to the next intersection, there they were. A mom, a dad, and a child taking a walk. They walked in a line, one behind the other, Dad, Child, Mom. What was shiny you ask? A simple soap bubble. Dad was “blowing” bubbles with a long wand. As he drew the wand through the air, lines of bubbles blew back on the child who was “catching” them and skipping in delight.
At the end of a long week, I took this as a reminder that spring is coming, that children still delight in the simple things, and that there is still hope in the world.
Look for the light in the little things this weekend!
