As I look around at the lives that inhabit our planet, I find more sad faces than happy ones. I believe this could be easily remedied if we took a moment out of our day to acknowledge something as insignificant as the morning dew. Through this simple task we might find that the world really isn’t as bad as we make it out to be, instead we would find that, against all odds, magic still dwells on this earth. All we have to do is take the time to discover it.
With Under the Tuscan Sun still fresh on my mind I decided
to explore my hometown with my “little sister”, Olivia. As we
drove through my town I showed her an old faded school bus with the words
Jesus Saves stamped across the front and back of it I discovered about a week ago. The bus was parked in front of a house
that seemed just as abandoned as the bus itself, making it a bit more unusual.
After, we walked to the outskirts
of town where I showed her the timeworn tire swing that has swung the children
of my “turf” since before I can remember. There is something about an old tire
swing that just makes you feel free. Maybe that’s why we are so envious of
children? Children are unaware of boundaries we grown ups have created and are
allowed to live their life in sheer bliss.
Even though the day doesn’t seem like much, it was such
an amazing adventure that promised many more to come.
