The sun sets on another day…
I could not see the sunset again today but I still sat back for a moment and thought about all the wonderful things it brings. after all another day is ended and it was a pretty good day.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had the innocence of a child throughout our life? I am either blessed or cursed with remembering clear memories back to when I am told I was two years old and under. As I have gotten older in the last few years I actually have to sit down and clear my thoughts for a moment to remember them all but they’re all still there. I remember very clearly as I sat last night staring at the ceiling all of the fascination’s I have had during my life. I was once scared buy a giant spark plug that kids at the babysitters were chasing me around with saying it would disintegrate me. I knew it was a spark plug even back then because my dad was a Motorhead to the extreme level , but I still let it get to me because I had doubt. I laughed about that staring at the ceiling but then giggled as I thought about all the pinwheels I’ve had and how wonderful it was to watch the colors as they were caught in the wind or I was moving them around.
For those of you that don’t know what a pinwheel is, it is a handheld stick with a bunch of patterns on it that when it gets caught in the wind it goes around in circles like a windmill. You see them at carnivals and fairs and just about every dollar store that exists simply because they amuse children. I was amused because of the colors and all of the fun it was watching that little piece of silver and blue go around. Yes my pinwheel was silver and blue. It’s funny I had numerous pinwheels and almost all of them were silver and blue even though I’ve seen just about every color out there. I digress.
Wouldn’t it be nice if all of us showed that same fascination with all of the fun things there are each and every day? Wouldn’t it be nice if we all just enjoyed the little things that we’re faced with instead of ignoring that excitement that we’ve already seen? Wouldn’t it be nice if the things that were important in our life stayed important?
I think it would be. It is why when I’m cutting down a tree or splitting wood or else lying in a hammock watching the world go by that I just step back and smile for a moment and realize the world is a wonderful place.
So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment and find those things right next to you that you’re really not giving enough time to and change. You have the power to take it back and make every day the best that it can be, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and feel the wind blow…
