Last weekend my mom drove down to L’s parents house to have a little visit with us. Oh, and she brought this precious 14 month old with her. Gosh, I love that little guy. I mean how can you not?! It took him a minute to get settled in, but slowly his skepticism of us changed and we ended up in the tree-house and had a grand ‘ol time.
I realized I was mildly jealous of my nephew when I watched him smile and laugh. He smiled and laughed at the simplest things and behind that grin there wasn’t worry or stress, not anymore, not even a little bit. As adults, what would we give for this, to be simply and purely happy with not a distraction or care in the world? Does that ever happen? Perhaps some, but how can we allow it to happen more? Can we have more of this with less of everything else?
So that’s why I’m jealous of my nephew…that and his blue eyes because those are amazing.
