A childs joy
In my last post I mentioned a trip I was taking well I've gone and come back. Leaving early Sunday morning and returning this morning. I met my family in Disneyland, and spent the day with them there on Monday. My 76 year old mother has wanted to take her great grandchildren to Disneyland for several years and this year it happened. My entire family went my sister, my niece and my great niece and nephew. What a wonderful day. They get to stay for 2 more days but I was lucky to be able to spend the day with them. Spending the day with two little ones brings the child back to life. It was a joy to experience their excitement and enthusiasm for everything. We rode ride after ride, walked and walked and they never got tired, they never complained either. I was shocked-I expected whining and temper tantrums. I guess they were just so happy to be at Disneyland nothing could make them upset. Walking back to the hotel after a busy active day we walked past a live band and I actually started to dance! I realized then that I had opened up to the possibility of play and had my niece and nephew to thank for it. I wish they could understand how full my heart is tonight and how wonderful the gift is that they have given me.
