Last night we had one of those long, cleansing summer storms, complete with deep, rolling thunder and eye-clenching lightning. You know the kind. And when you get up the next morning, the whole world looks fresh and new. I always look forward to my morning walks after a heavy rain … I think it taps my inner child. Temperatures are a bit lower. Water drips from the live oaks, and the Resurrection ferns have unfurled and are lush and green. The dusty Spanish moss glistens in the sun, and the puddles are just waiting to be splashed through.
This morning I found a kindred spirit. It’s 6:45 am and this little girl is already celebrating last night’s gift. It doesn’t get much simpler than this.
Puddle + Swim Ring = Fun!
I like that equation.
So today I’m going to turn things topsy-turvy and concentrate on seeing my world through a child’s eyes. Come on in … the water’s fine.
Have a great weekend. Go Play!
