Stones ~

What little child doesn't love to play with
My little granddaughter sure does ~
She collects them... carries them... And drops them into the basket over and over... getting pure delight out of the simple things in life. I want to be more like her~

This is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it~

Blessings today to each of you~

It is the simple things in life and we should be teaching our children's children that... Every time you will buy a smaller child something and they will play with the box.... We should learn from them.... I do believe we all can learn a lesson from that... Be content in life and not have the desire for all things we cannot have... The sooner you learn that all those things do not make you happy ... it is inside you the more content you will ne in life.... I believe we do teach our children and grand children to have many wants when we should be taking a lesson from them and just be happy with the simple things. I so have learned that lesson over the last few years.....

We used to be like that. We used to be amazed at a stone or bug or a leaf or just plain dirt. Then Life happened.... I can't believe that we were in a hurry to "grow up"!!

That is just too funny beacause it is sooooo true and my children do the exact same thing!!! My 2 yr old likes to put rocks in the "trunk" of her cozy coup and drive them around!

Hi Sandi,
My little granddaughter loves to collect stones as well. She always leaves here with a bag full. I tell hubby that we will have to have more hauled in soon to keep her busy.
You baby is too cute.
