I love to watch puppies as they run and tumble, playing with anything they can find whether it is a toy or your shoe. Their antics will make even the most grumpy person smile. It seems that the young whether puppies or babies know the art of having fun and laughing--of being carefree. We need to get our joy back. Children can find joy in any thing, whether it is playing in the sprinkler or with a cardboard box.They run with abandon, study bugs with intensity, and chase butterflies. The concept of tomorrow is not part of their life.

The promise of things to come! This morning I noticed this rose bud reaching toward the sky. Soon it will start to show color, and then burst into a red blaze of color. Looking forward is half the pleasure. The anticipation for the future should be enjoyed. Even if things don't work out just as I had planned, no one can take the pleasure of expectation from me. I am looking forward to spring, when the desert will suddenly throw on its party dress and dance in the breeze, if only for a little while. I am looking forward to getting a car. How I will enjoy being able to go whenever the mood strikes me! I am looking forward to my daughter's marriage this summer, hoping that this new beginning will bring her happiness. I am looking forward to the vacation in Hawaii and the excitement to explore all its exotic places. I am even looking forward to getting my dishes done. I enjoy a sparkling sink. So even the little things bring enjoyment, and I look forward to doing them.
