Mud Puddles and Dandelions

MUD PUDDLES AND DANDELIONS


When I look at a patch of dandelions, I see a bunch of weeds that are going to take over my yard. My kids see flowers for Mom and blowing white fluff you can wish on. When I look at an old drunk and he smiles at me, I see a smelly, dirty person who probably wants money and I look away. My kids see someone smiling at them and they smile back. When I hear music I love, I know I can't carry a tune and don't have much rhythm so I sit self-consciously and listen. My kids feel the beat and move to it. They sing out the words. If they don't know them, they make up their own. When I feel wind on my face, I brace myself against it. I feel it messing up my hair and pulling me back when I walk. My kids close their eyes, spread their arms and fly with it, until they fall to the ground laughing. When I pray, I say thee and thou and grant me this, give me that. My kids say, "Hi God! Thanks for my toys and my friends. Please keep the bad dreams away tonight. Sorry, I don't want to go to Heaven yet. I would miss my Mommy and Daddy. "When I see a mud puddle I step around it. I see muddy shoes and dirty carpets. My kids sit in it. They see dams to build, rivers to cross and worms to play with. I wonder if we are given kids to teach or to learn from? No wonder God loves the little children!!

"Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you
may look back and realize they were the big things."

Just remember about the important things in life.
I wish you mud puddles and dandelions!

It's all true.
The society that we built requires that we lose our innocent view on everything. We are bent, hammered and molded into a shape that does society the most good. We sell our souls to the companies we work for so that we can have more "stuff".
In the mean time, something fundamental is lost.

Always keep the child within us and remember life is short.

    That was very beautiful. Too bad more people don't really try to live up to that. The world would be a much kinder and peaceful place to live. I still love to splash in rain puddles! PEACE~
Rain puddles maybe but not mud puddles, unless it is with a hot and horny naked man!
