Outside, under our carport, is a little blue pool that my husband filled with sand last Summer for our grandchild. We spent a lot of time out there, digging, piling the sand, shoveling, and burying the farm people. The winter has now come and gone and its time for play again in the sandbox. I can hear the giggles now, see the little feet digging into the coolness of the sand underneath, and see the smiles on the face of our most precious thing in life.
Don't you wish our life's were like that sandbox? That we could giggle all day and dig our feet deeper into the coolness of the sand ? Instead we are caught up in the day by day things of living too fast, too noisy, too commercialized, too much work, too much worry, and way too little laughter.
The innocence of a little child is a blessing from God. My granddaughter is teaching me that life is much better when you dig your feet deeper into the cool sand, enjoy life as it is, and giggle!
