The other day we saw something splendid. We stopped on the way home from Tractor Supply, one of Chris’s favorite places, to eat at the Mexican restaurant, also one of Chris’s favorite places. Earlier, we had been to Starbucks, one of my favorite places. I discovered a new drink, which I will learn to make at home.
But back to the splendid. There was a large birthday party taking up one side of the restaurant. Small children were in their party clothes. Girls were all frilly, and little boy donned bow ties. After the meal they started running around the table. They got braver. They started running around the whole restaurant. I think Chris wanted to run with them. I’m glad no one stopped them. After all, it was a party. Life should be like that for all ages.
I am thankful for the innocence and free spirit of children and would love to see it more in adults.
