and simply enjoy the little things. The things that you see, hear, smell or taste without too much thought.
Life is amazing, and we all spend far too much time focusing upon things we have absolutely no control over.
I took a break today.
No television news, no radio..no newspapers or online magazines. I spent the morning playing a game (building a farm on a facebook game…mindless and relaxing) , spent a few hours with my friend, then came home to discuss world issues with Sam (the six year old next door)
Sam graduated from kindergarten this year and has figured out that his teacher will be different for first grade. He was bemoaning the fact “I just gots the teacher trained and now I gots another one!”
I told Sam that he would have a different teacher for each year until he was in middle school, then he would have six or seven teachers from then on.
He looked at me as if I suddenly had sprouted a second head……….shook his own at me and said “Now Grandma Suze, I think yer exacerbating to me”.
Took me a few seconds to realize he meant exaggerating. yes, I can be dense at times.
We spent most of the afternoon in the backyard taking pictures. His photos and commentary follow………..
Turns out it was dirt…Who would have ever guessed?
