Flying a Kite

As I was driving back to work from getting lunch, I passed by a local school where they were outside flying kites. It was a beautiful sight...kites everywhere. It brought me back to the days I was going to that very school and flying my kite (it is some project that they must do every year, you build a kite then go outside to fly it). Oh, how things were uncomplicated and everything seemed perfect in my world back in those days. I had a great childhood and many happy memories from my childhood. Don't get me wrong I love my life now, but for some reason when you are an adult you are no longer sheltered from the bad in the world, no longer naive to the things going on around you. Today is such a beautiful day and I wish I was outside flying a kite. I love our Southeast Texas weather! I love being outside and the feeling of the sun hitting my skin (I really don't care how hot it is). Sunlight makes me happy!!!!

I passed that school today at the same time! I had many of the same thoughts...oh to have the innocence of a child and the thrill of nothing more than flying a kite today! :)

I think this same thing all the time. When you are a kid your biggest concerns are usually "how many more days till my birthday?"

Love your signature, BTW!!
