Joy in simple things

on June 29, 2016

We had a pretty big frost last night.

When I was walking our young Miss into school this morning, there were two little girls who were almost jumping up and down with excitement.

I don’t know them and they don’t know me, but they started telling me about the snow on the grass “I can’t believe we got snow, there’s snow here at school”. It was the frost, still there in the shaded section at 8:30 in the morning. So of course I enthusiastically continued the conversation with them about how cold their hands would be if they picked it up without gloves and how lucky they were to remember to wear their jumper that day. The Mum kind of stuff! I didn’t have the heart to tell them that their “snow” hadn’t fallen from the sky.

Pure wonderment. Pure joy.

Kids being kids.

Taking joy in simple things. In nature. Like smelling flowers and admiring the different colours of leaves.

There needs to be more of it.

At what age did we stop being child-like?
