Sunshiny day


There is beauty in simplicity.  

Today was really simple.  

And beautiful.  

The sun shined.  

An unknown but loud rock singer offered his rendition of "Living on a Prayer," in our driveway.  

The wind blew.  

But piggyback rides were in order anyway.  

The bikes, scooters and toys are still in hibernation in another location.  

But fun and amusement were had by all. 

Some days, when the sun shines, its all there for the taking.  

You don't contemplate anything.  

You just be.  


In the sun.  

And say a quick prayer for those who aren't outside with you.  

There is beauty in simplicity.  Today was really simple.  And beautiful.  The sun shined.  


  1. Is there anything better than smiles on little boy faces?

    Love that little rock star.

  2. What a beautifully written post, Vicky. :) I'm glad you got to share a gorgeous day with your boys.
