~ watching, with excitement, as the caterpillar Reece found formed a "J" shortly after capture and then formed it's chrysalis, we think it's a painted lady, only time will tell
~ spending time by the water
~ spying the first wild raspberries, there was only a handful ripe, but goodness, they were so good
~ seeing frogs!
~ catching frogs
~ harvesting wild peppermint
At the end of the day when I load photos onto the computer it never ceases to amaze me just how much joy there is in the simple things. Honestly, I don't need big moments in my life, all I need are the small, joy filled moments, those are the ones that make me smile. You see, it is these moments that I tuck away in my heart, to be recalled in the days to come. Years from now I will remember walking hand in hand with my little man in the woods, I will remember catching frogs on a hot and humid day, I will remember the taste of those first wild raspberries, and I will remember the sweet smile of my little man as he sat by the water, lost in thought. There is magic in these moments, a sweet, sweet magic, and gosh, they make life so darn good.
What simple joys are filling your day?
