Take Time to Chase a Butterfly

It only takes a couple of warm sunny days in a row for the first blossoms on the trees and wild flowers to start appearing.

I had a little fun with my camera this weekend taking pictures around our place.

We had some of the grandkiddos here and spent most of the time playing and exploring outside. They love to trample through the trails and climb on stumps and logs so we had a blast just being together. I asked them if they wanted to go to a park after church and Canyon( my 5 year old grandson) said” No , Grammie, I’d rather just stay at your house and play outside”. He’s a joy to my heart, well they all are, but he says the sweetest things. So we did just that and we had a great time around our place. They are happiest with simple things and just your time and attention.

Sometimes we can get so busy with the work to be done that we forget to just stop and play. I think that is one of the reasons why God gives us grandkids. They make you take time to snuggle, read a story, walk a trail , chase a butterfly, pick a flower, find a bug or salamander, laugh until your sides hurt and sing a silly song. We did all of that and more this weekend.

I thank God everyday for the little ones He has blessed our family with they bring us more joy than they will ever know.

I pray you take some time soon and just see the day through the eyes of a child and be blessed as you slow down and study the petals of a flower or the wings of a butterfly. Believe me it will be so worth it.

Make the most of this Monday!
