make sure that you pay attention.
Soak up the details. Get involved. Get messy.
Savor the flavors in life that come your way.
Doesn’t everyone have a picture just like this of themselves when they were small? Little kids are the best at really enjoying the details of life. Without reservation, my son savored every morsel of this treat. He didn’t care that it was a Weight Watcher one point special. He just knew it was chocolate, it was delicious, and that it made him happy. Go ahead and judge me if you like, but I knew my son was going to make a mess, and it was almost time for jammies, so I let him have the treat in only a diaper. I love how happy he is, and how much he clearly shows his appreciation for the gift of the food. May we all live by the example he shows: appreciate what you are given, savor the flavors of life, and find the positive even amongst the messiest of situations. Yet again, my children are the masters and I am but the student.
