The Gift of Happiness


"It is a happy talent to know how to play." ~Oliver Wendall Holmes

Have you ever known someone who is naturally happy and just seems to know how to have fun? Masey is one of those people, I think. He has a genuinely sunny nature, his natural mood is happiness, his favorite color [at least lately] is yellow and he is very easy to please. As I watch him at home, he is most content just playing. Playing with Thomas and his trains, with Lightnin' McQueen and the Cars, with the kitchen toys [serving 'meals' to me after taking my order], building with blocks -- any of these things make that little boy happy.

He knows how to play! I watch him and I feel like I need some lessons. I get too tied up in scheduling, in making sure things get done, in keeping things tidy etc. I need to just play.

Look at that face! See? It's contagious! [aren't you smiling too? I am!]
