I Simply Smile

“While we try to teach our children all about life,
our children teach us what life is all about.”
~Richard L. Evans~


And it is a moment as pure and unprofound as this. 
A moment spent playing in our front yard, chasing balls, playing with the watering can, and coloring with chalk, and I realize.  I realize that I have everything I need.  I am right where God intended me to be
and that my blessings far out number my worries.
And when I look at her chubby knees and starfish hands, I smile. 
I simply smile.
