can you smell that?
scattered across the lawn,
waiting to be scooped up into a pile.
tossed back into the air.
do it all again.
but it's the smell that gets me.....
when I close my eyes and
it takes me back.
I am little.
I see a giant pile of crunchy color, waiting just for me.
I hear squeals of happiness,
in my memory.
they melt into reality.
I open my eyes from my day dream
and see my Littles taking the plunge in to the pile of gold.
We throw them in the air, I close my eyes and breathe them in.
I am thankful.
Thankful to be able to play outside in the sunshine.
Thankful for my sense of smell, and how it triggers my brain and makes me remember being little once too.
(It is crazy to see your kids doing things you once did.
Thankful for memories.
We are on day sixteen here of being thankful.
There are SO many things to be thankful for......we are loving thinking of new things each day.
What are YOU thankful for today?
