We will always remember how much they loved bubbles. An age old pastime for children. But, do we really ever outgrow the fascination of these floating rainbow spheres? Magical smiles and shrieks of laughter as we simply blow this soapy mixture. When we slow down for a minute, we realize what really brings us joy. Spending time with these little people. Watching them, sharing in their delight. Getting caught up in these gleeful moments and feeling like children ourselves. We live for these memories. The knowledge that this perfect, happy time when this simple activity thrills them so much will float away like one of those bubbles as they grow older, makes it all the more sweeter.
And for some, happiness is simply holding their own bottle of bubbles! Here's to sibling love, choke hold hugs and childhood independence, even if it means spilling every container of bubbles!
