Walking behind these girls last night on the beach. The mom called out, “Hurry up, Carson, we’ve got to go!”
As Carson took off running she yelled to her mom, “But, can’t we have a little fun along the way?”
The scene stopped me in my tracks, because, of course, Carson is absolutely right. It seems to me that’s pretty much the entire point of living.
Oh sure, one must work and fulfill other daily obligations but beyond that? I truly believe we are meant to savor those sunsets, laugh with friends, dance barefoot in the sand, stop to smell the flowers, share sweet kisses, and enjoy life while we have it.
Thanks for the reminder, Carson!
