You know those days?
Those days when you have a ton
of things to do for work.
When none of it is making sense?
When it is raining and dismal outdoors?
This is what happens to Kaish on those days:
On a sunny, happy fall day,
when muddy feet would make me smile,
they are no where to be found!
But when I up to my eyeballs in paperwork,
when I am racking my brain about what to make for dinner,
when I am popping advil like jelly beans…
And he WALKS thru the house to show me.
I kid you not!
I did NOT!
I think I scared the neighborhood kids.
After we got out to the garage and started getting clean.
I got nicer : )
and I smiled.
And I listened to the story
of how they were playing at the ‘pond’
(which is really a sewer…in case you were wondering)
when Kaish fell in.
I thanked God for the precious boy
he gave me!
The precious, wonderful boy!
The boy who loves mud!
And then I did something that always makes me smile!
I forced them to let me take a picture.
Only Shoshi complied!
My Daddy used to take us
out to the edge of the cornfield
in the summer
after it had rained.
That mud felt glorious!
I have to ask my Mom
how she felt about clean up!
I am sure she was DELIGHTED : )
