Not too long ago Pops and I went to an antique car show and it was a lot of fun. There were games for the kids like "throw a fan belt," "roll a tire," etc.
Surprisingly, my favorite thing wasn't the beautiful street rods. It was seeing two of our grandkids run up to Pops and me with outstretched arms, calling our names.
Although the chili dog with onions was mighty good, it wasn't as satisfying as standing back and watching a toddler attempt to roll a very small tire as his big sis tossed fan belts like they were Frisbees.
It really doesn't take much to make a kid happy, does it?
My childhood memories included climbing a "slippery" tree, holding squirming puppies, and lying in the warm grass while imagining shapes of animals in the clouds above. And it seems like yesterday when Pops and my children were having obstacle races in the back yard and building make-believe forts out of sheets and blankets.
Do you ever feel like life today is far too complicated? Maybe it's time to go back and savor our real treasures−God, family ... and simple things.
What were some of the simple things that you enjoyed as a child. What about your kids and grandkids?
