Oh the simple things in life!

I was looking through some pictures the other night, and it made me realize how greatful I am to be a mom. I got to thinking, before I had Carson, when was the last time I picked up a worm and thought "Cool!" (probably a long time...worms are gross)! Having a kid has made me greatful for all the simple things in life and makes me appreciate all the amazing and enjoyable little things...we are truely blessed. Simple things such as listening to a train pass by, or crunching a leaf in your hand, or:

squishing mud between your toes,Running your hand through a patch of blooming flowers,Letting water from a hose give you a "shower",

and holding a worm in your hand.

I am so greatful that I get to enjoy all these things and many more in life and enjoy them with the ones I love the most. Gordon B. Hinckley said it best:

"In all of living have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured."

Hey, chicken strips turned out good--our sauce didn't turn out as spicy as yours, which was good for me (I'm a wimp), but Michael liked yours better I think.
