Happiness

There is nothing that makes me happier than a weekend spent with family enjoying the simple things in life. A walk along the harbor, an afternoon spent hanging around in the yard or playing in the green grass. These are simple pleasures, but those that give me complete satisfaction. 

I love to watch my children discover new things. I love to watch them enjoy things like turning over a log and discovering a whole new world of crazy little insects living beneath. 
What I'm realizing is this: my gift in being a parent isn't just the ability to witness all the sincere wonder my children have for this life, but it's also to be able to 
remember my own.

Aaahhhh just reading the words 'the harbor' makes me want to load up the car and drive out to the beach. That is at least 14 hours away. I want so much for my kids to see the beach/ocean soon.
