Remember, Jonathan

I hope you remember the day when I gave you a list of homework that needed to be done before you could play. You did your best until a great wind came along and swept you outside. I could have tethered you down, but instead I let it sweep you outside. The whole neighborhood was outside joyfully relishing the crazy weather. As a child, it must be wonderful to run and become one with the wind. Adults forget these things and lose interest in experiencing "the wild joy of living".

So, remember this day, Jonathan. I hope you will also let your kids run rampant when the wild winds call them.

Beautiful, Lela. It brought tears to my eyes. Coincidently, Jonathan just blew by me in the kitchen - on the run from a mad rubber band gunman. Thanks for your lovely words.
