This Saturday, I'm grateful for... "oh look!! Bub's up THERE!"

The joyous simplicity of children.

This Saturday AM, the back doors were open and I was inside getting dressed. My husband and daughter went outside and shared a quiet moment.

They must have been outside for at least a few minutes.

"oh look, bub's up THERE!" my daughter proclaimed suddenly.

"Nicole! Come see!" shouted my husband.

So I came. And I saw.

Elliott was up in the flower pot.

IN. The flower pot.

Quiet. Content. Picking little native daisies one by one. Tasting. Feeling.

He must have been in there a good few minutes before anyone noticed him.

The joyous simplicity of children. This Saturday, I'm grateful for that. x
