Play

 

I chose to focus this blog on life’s simple things because amidst all the busyness of life, I always need a source of accountability to focus on things that are truly important to me.  These are the little things that put a smile on my face, give me something to look forward to, or are just little unexpected surprises.  One of these things is play.

Now,  I will admit that after 30+ years of being sans child, it isn’t in my nature to whip up a puppet show or build a gingerbread house from scratch.  However, once I’m in the midst of any kind of play, I find that I adapt quite well to the environment.  In fact, I find that having a child brings out a side of me I didn’t know I had.

Dancing with my daughter, going down the slides, digging in the sand, watercoloring, playing hide and go seek, spinning in circles until we’re laughing so hard, collecting rocks; I love these moments.  Moments that sometimes seem like just seconds of my day amongst the hustle and bustle, but moments I cherish and look forward to the most.

What moments do you cherish?
