Aren't children wonderful?
Isn't it great how they remind us of the little things that matter?
Don't you delight when they share their joy?
At our house the delight came in two places this weekend...
The seven-year-old learned how to blow bubbles with his bubble gum and the four-year-old got the high score on "Temple Run" (please lecture me later about how much time my children should spend with electronics and just rejoice with him at his 600,000+ score).
High scores and blowing bubbles. Are these the things lives are built on? Are these the most important skills my children will have? Are these even really all that important? You can answer "no" to all of those questions and I won't challenge your answer.
But, what I am reminded of (thanks to high scores and bubbles) is the importance of finding joy.
What has brought you so much joy lately that you had to share it with someone else?
What has sent you off to your spouse, friend, parent, co-worker, or child to say with pride, "Look! Look what I did!"?
What little joy in your life makes you smile and feel good and feel accomplished?
