Simple Things

This week I was reminded of appreciating the simple things in life.  We had so many lovely moments in the environment, from baking to reading to writing and simply enjoying each others company.  I was happy watching one child break four eggs, finally able to do it without crushing the shell in his hand.  I was happy watching an older child perfect her manuscript, and happy watching another make a terrific backward "J."  I was happy when I found the perfect pencil cup.  There is much in life that is complicated, and difficult,  but when we work together, young and old, there is beauty.
