My grand kids and I were out chasing lightening bugs last night, the only difference from then and now is I am teaching my grand kids (Sid and Riley) that running in the fields (the same fields that I ran in as a child) and chasing them is fun, but instead of catching them we take pictures! This is a lot of fun to a 5 and 3 year old and we are going to develop the pictures we take and put them all over the ceiling of the playroom!
This is hard work though for grandma, I told the kids before I though and so far most of the pictures (if I am lucky) have only one or two in the picture. This gives us more reason though to be out there each night, running in the fields and playing.
I have been thinking this morning how much pleasure the simplest things in life give us. I ran in the fields as a child chasing the lightning bugs, then 20 years later with my children and now (cough, cough,) 40 years later with my grand babies and I still get that same thrill in my chest!
I feel so blessed to have grown up in the country. :)
|So far most of the pictures look like this with just one lightning bug|
Thank God for life's little pleasures! :)
