Today I went for a walk in the late afternoon with my friend. We had her 2 year old son with us. He is a ball of energy, absolutely adorable and super smart. About a km away from her house, the weather changed. The wind started howling. We were pelted with fine sand and big drops of rain started to fall.
In stead of being afraid, my friend’s son was thrilled to experience this change in weather. He started shouting and calling out everything he was experiencing. We are so addicted to our walk that the rain never stops my friend and I but I don’t think we appreciate the experience as much as we did today. Fortunately it was just a few drops today so her little man didn’t get soaked. The point, though, is that we got to experience Mother Nature through the eyes of a child and that is always a delightful experience. I am grateful.
