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?
