Trips are fun and exciting, events like those mentioned above are memorable, and material things will get old and break. However, the simple joys are what I will remember about this summer most of all. I will treasure the moments like these.
Knowing that my oldest son taught his little brother to ride his bike without training wheels. How happy my four year old was to be able to ride just like his brother and sister. Watching them ride and ride through our yard without a care in the world.
Knowing all the while that it won’t be long before this little guy will be riding along with them. For now he is content to wander around the yard exploring all of nature’s treasures. Learning new words and trying to understand all he sees.
Yes, I am truly blessed and thank God every day for the simple joys. All the money in the world could not buy the happiness I feel just by watching these four precious children experience life.
