I couldn't help but get swept up in the simple pleasure that my son was enjoying while playing out in his pool this weekend. The happiness that exploded from his soul was intoxicating as he splished and splashed and jumped.
Remember when happiness came that easily? Effortlessly?
I watched as he filled a bucket of water. He carefully and methodically walked from the poolside towards my flower bed while carrying the bucket of water. Each step, each divet in the lawn that he stumbled upon, more and more water splashed out of the bucket. By the time he reached the flowers, he dumped the bucket over only to realize that it was empty. He stopped and looked back at the pool quizzically and shouted "Oh man!" but, determined to water the flowers, he ran back to the pool and refilled the bucket. He did this over and over, each time getting better at containing the water.
