Are You LOVIN’ Your Life?

 

In a moment reminiscent of Art Linkletter’s Kids Say the Darndest Things, I had a big chuckle the other day when I overheard our neighbor’s children playing.  They were on one of those slip and slide mats and had been playing sliding around on it most of the day.

The oldest one was teasing her younger sister for spending so much time on the mat.  I think she was bored and wanted to move on to another game or toy. She told her little sister that it was time to stop.

The youngest one didn’t miss a beat.  She said with outright glee…

“No way, I’m having fun! I’m lovin’ my life!”

I hope this 5 year old never loses this absolutely joyous feeling about their life.

 

So with the beginning of a new week and a new month, I ask you...are you that 5 year old?

Are you having fun? Are you loving the life you’re living?  

 

Be happy for this moment.

This moment is your life.

Life is a challenge and it's pleasantness is a result of how we meet those challenges and move past.  We are enjoying where we are in our lives.

Oh 5 year olds are so funny....and such a great example for us to follow!

A few years ago my grandsons Tommy and Jack were looking out the window as their mother drove off and this is what I heard:

Jack:  Isn't mommy the best, or what?

Tom:  what.

Kathy,

I had to chuckle, our generation said "Kids Say the Darndest Things!"

I think today's newest baby millennial slogan would be Kids Say the Most Brilliant Things!
