Summer has always been my favorite season.
Floating in the pool.
The farmer’s market.
Fresh fruit – especially watemelon.
As a mom, I love summer even more now.
Because everything on my list is filled with squeals of wonder and delight (well, the squeals of delight are from my 3-year-old. My 3-week-old doesn’t have the delight part down yet, but she will.)
My son wants to go swimming every day. He leaps into the water with reckless abandon.
It is captivating to see him to take joy in such a simple pleasure.
Too often, as adults, we are so caught up in the “big” stuff that we miss out on the simple joys.
At least I know I do.
But with a newborn in my arm and a 3-year-old boy who giggles more in a day than I do in a week, I can’t help but reflect on the true joys God has placed in my life — and give thanks.
Today, go jump in a pool. Laugh until your belly hurts. Take time to revel in the simple.Leave a Comment
