Today’s Little Things Thursday is brought to you by dandelions and real childhood.
I live in on of those communities where weeds are a sin. One is hard pressed to find dandelions around our neighborhood.
A little plot in our local grocery store strip mall sprouted a patch of dandelions over the last couple weeks and I have been eyeing them. Last night I finally made a point to stop and let the boys enjoy them for a few minutes.
Yes, this was taken in a weed ridden plot of land that will probably become one more slice of suburbia in the years to come. Last night we stopped for a little slice of childhood magic while it was still to be found. Sometimes I wonder whatever happened to dandelions, daisy chains, fireflies, star gazing and all those other glories of summer. Whatever happened to simple childhood magic? It seems we have replaced it with some elaborate attempt to make it more meaningful by making everything grand, but have we really achieved meaning?
I find myself turning back to simple again and again. Isn’t it the littlest things that we remember most? Isn’t it those organic moments that become our treasures?
I think so.
What simple memories are your favorites?
