Day 113. Ladybug.

My second son is thrilled with the warm weather we've had the last couple of days.  As soon as we got home from church and finished our lunch, he asked if he could go outside to play.  Moments later, he shouted from the back porch, "MOM!  You have to see this!"  He extended his hands, as a ladybug quickly crawled from one finger to the next.  Isn't it amazing how a child enjoys such simple pleasures?  Sure, my son has seen a ladybug before, but he hasn't lost his childlike fascination and interest in such things.
This morning, while finishing off the last of yesterday's leftover monkey bread, this same son of mine exclaimed to all of us, "I think I'm going to take little bites, so I don't waste the goodness of it!"  Seemed kind of profound, if you ask me.  :)  How often do we rush through something, without stopping to enjoy the goodness of it?  Yes, I think it would be wonderful if we could all recapture a moment of our childhood... before the innocence was lost and things were fresh and new... and everything had a taste of goodness in it.
