Obviously, I LOVE my kid! I like his smartness, his sense of humor, his love of the Lord, and the fact that he also likes to stop and smell the chocolates of life.
Last night, we were admiring the beginning of the sunset while driving home from the grocery store - wisps of clouds tinted orange and pink against the pale blue sky. My son asked me if I had seen the sunset the night before, during his baseball game. I had not. I was paying attention to the players on the field, of course!
My son told me that he was sorry I had missed it - he said that it was the brightest red and the prettiest sunset he had ever seen in his life! He had noticed it while he was on third base. :)
Well, he will not be the next great pro baseball player with that sort of focus on the game - LOL! - but I am so happy that he takes the time to stop and appreciate God's beauty right in the middle of ordinary life.
I encourage you to stop for a moment in your busy day to appreciate something beautiful that God has put in your life.
~ Take a look at my sidebar. There is a new button at the top where you can go to Divine Caroline and vote for my blog if you feel so inclined - I was so excited to be nominated! Further down, you can add yourself to my list of friends (AKA followers - don't worry, you're not joining a chocolate cult or anything). And a little further down, I have a poll on Thanksgiving side dishes - Sweet potatoes is ahead right now. If you don't agree, you better place your vote!
