Simple Joys of Today

Monday, April 15, 2013

Today my children are happy to play with toads and dig holes in the dirt

Today they laugh any time they hear the word fart or poop

Today they get excited  about putting frozen waffles in the toaster

Today they are quick to give a kiss and a hug

Today they are content to play with legos and watch a silly cartoon

Today they smile with sweet, innocent eyes

Today their biggest worry is that they have to do school and chores

Today they tease each other and whine, thinking they are always right

Today a bouncy ball brings hours of entertainment

Today they cry for reasons that they think are of the utmost importance

Today they can't decide which bait they should put on their fishing poles

Today they whisper tender secrets into each others ears

Today I wish that they could stay this way forever

Today is quickly becoming a memory without us even noticing

So I treasure these simple moments that childhood is all about and entrust them to the one who holds their tomorrow's.
