Priceless joys

When turbulent storms rock your boat
And you are shaken, befuddled
Then take a pause, take a breath
And play with your child

Blow soap bubbles
And watch them fly high
Run after them
Tender, timeless  joys

Buy a chocolate, eat an icecream
Take a stroll in the park
Build a sand castle by the seaside
These are life’s priceless joys

Fly a kite, take a swim
cycle or skate
Lifes greatest lessons
Are learned through simple joys

    Absolutely beautiful! It’s true that we encounter so many emotional, mental and physical storms every day, but enjoying a day with your kids or grandkids makes all the stress disappear. You become a child again and begin to find joy in the simplest things.
    Wonderful words and so well written. Enjoyed reading this; be blessed!
