Universal Living In the Fun of It

universeWe’ve had rain and storms this week. That’s okay. We are slowly catching up on the drought. I have a few rose buds and a peony blooming, with the tiny pink flowers of oxalis adding bright winks to Spring. My irises didn’t/haven’t bloomed yet. Ah well. In the whole scheme of things, it doesn’t matter. Because I do remember…

Remember when it was really fun, Silver, to catch raindrops on your tongue, walk under archways because they were there, and roll around in the sand at the beach? To go all the way to the store for a tiny treat, lie on the grass looking for “God” in the clouds, and make scary monster faces in the mirror? To watch the stars because they were winking at you, count the flowers in the garden by the door, and put Cocoa Puffs up your nose?

Well, Silver, I’m happy to inform you, most of it still is.

Whoohoooo, Silver, you’re alive!

Go have some fun today! That’s on my list of things to do. *nods* Right after I wish my favorite brother-in-law and his lovely wife (the SiL I mention with great affection sometimes) a very happy anniversary! ❤

  1. ROFL… I don’t remember putting Cocoa Puffs up my nose, but I can totally see myself checking to see if they fit. And yes… to it all. I might add: talk in funny voices, whistle back at the birds, dance in public, have conversations with the bugs, pick up shiny stones… It’s all fun and it all makes us happy. And happiness is necessary to our existence.

    I tried explaining this to a young woman the other day. She was so grumpy and so determined to be grumpy, it was totally sad. But then again, I was the same way when I was 19. Until I got over it. Life’s too short and negativity gets you nowhere. It just feeds on itself. Positivity does, too, if a person has a mind to let it.
