One of my closest friends emailed this morning and wrote, "I think you should post this on your blog." I agree. It's from StoryPeople, by Brian Andreas. This is one of my favorites, which isn't saying too much, because I pretty much love everything he does. There's something beautiful about noticing the true, sweet, goofy things in life and making them your own (and then, if you're really brave, sharing these magic thoughts with other people, so they can experience them, too.) My thoughts on this one - I agree, there's nothing better than spending the day playing outside. Anyway, here it is -
