I don’t know if y’all have seen this video or not, but I thought I’d share it in case you hadn’t. It’s a super cute video of an adorable toddler named Kayden, who is experiencing rain for the first time.
The look on her face is sheer joy, and that got me to thinking about how we sometimes neglect to just enjoy the simple things in life. We get so wrapped up in material things and everyday life that we forget to just enjoy the simple pleasures. Like seeing a gorgeous sunset at the end of a long day.
Or the beautiful reflection on a still pond.
It’s amazing that sometimes it takes seeing the innocence of a little child enjoying the rain to give us as adults a little perspective on life. She didn’t care if she was wearing designer clothes or had the latest tech gadget, she was just enjoying the moment. A lesson that I think we could all take a little something away from.
When was the last time to stopped to just enjoy the moment?
