This past Sunday, my son, Isaiah, woke up at 6am and immediately started doing summersaults, making forts, jumping around and, basically, playing hide and seek with himself. My family and I stared at him in complete bewilderment that someone could have so much energy instantly after waking. Isaiah's response--"I make happy of little things." This statement not only perfectly describes Isaiah, but it also provides a lesson for me, one that I've learned countless times (and will surely learn countless more). The French have a phrase that captures this sentiment, "Joie de vivre," the joy of living. We see this joy so clearly in children, and it provides such a beautiful reminder to enjoy life, savor the simple, chase life, and laugh with abandon. I hope today, and everyday, I can adopt my son's perspective, and "make happy of little things."
One committed to processing truth, finding light in the darkness, savoring the simple, and living fully.
