Higher and Higher

Samantha's current joy of life is swinging.
She regularly tells me, "Mommy, I want to swing higher and higher!"

Then she laughs joyously and says "Wheee!" as she flies through the air.
She says. "Mommy, Look at me! I'm swinging higher and higher!"

"Yes, baby, you are. I'm glad you enjoy it."

She shares her joy with her brother, telling me, "Mommy, J-bub wants to swing higher and higher, too." And she is right, he does love swinging, also. So I do what she asks and push him in his swing. Then she takes a turn pushing him as well.



I need to remember to keep watching this child and learning from her. Right now she reminds me to pursue simple things that bring us joy. To share joy with others. And to take the time to notice and be grateful for all the things, little and big, that God has placed around me. And to be grateful in all things.

Thank you, God, for this life, for this child and this lesson.
