School days are busy and crazy and full of driving, dropping and homeworking. Sometimes the day is over just as I am getting my bearings. And then...something about them also feels long, hot and long again. It's confusing how something can feel over- before it begins, but also dripping slow.
That is why we must watch the children play in the sprinklers. Don't you know?
It is a piece of heaven in a fallen world and it is solace to a crowded mind. You can let everything go and just watch those beautiful slippery bodies jumping, running and laughing, and feel like life and it's duties are a privilege.
And if the sun is beaming just right off of their skin, making it glow like copper...even better.
Read this and let it soak in...it's good stuff...
"The happiest people I know are not those who find their golden ticket; they are those who, while in pursuit of worthy goals, discover and treasure the beauty and sweetness of the everyday moments. They are the ones who, thread by daily thread, weave a tapestry of gratitude and wonder throughout their lives. These are they who are truly happy." ~Dieter F. Uchtdorf
