As a teacher, I encounter different answers from different children. If a child says that some flowers are blue, some trees are red, not all clouds are white and the moon can be seen at day, then that child (or children) can be assumed to be in tuned with what nature has shown and how the environment has influenced him/her in observing the things happening around. It is always a good idea to teach children how to observe and respect nature so that their generation can enjoy the Earth’s lovely places and in moderation, its bounty.
Early morning light from the sun, here we are the university church where my eldest daughter studies. It is a rare day indeed that we are up and about before sunrise, and on a Sunday at that.
Do you love mornings? I do! I wake up early to prepare the things needed for the day. I love waking up to the sound of chirping birds outside our windows. I like how the early morning rays play through the screen at the back part of the house where we can see the sun rise. Don’t you just love puttering in the house when everyone is still asleep?
Happiness is enjoying the little things in life: a smile, a pat on the back, a little breeze to help cool you down for just a minute, a warm sunshine after days of rain, a glass of cool water to ease a parched throat or a little weed flower that grew amidst the overgrown front yard grass.
These little things, compared to the grand scheme of life, are often unappreciated and unnoticed but when we look back, we realize that these made us feel more loved, more alive, more appreciative and more joyful.
