Play in the dirt

I just had the great opportunity to volunteer at my daughters school and bring in our worm bin and plant peas to celebrate earth day. I forgot how fun it was to play in the dirt and feel worms and smell the earth. Seemed like the kids had a blast and we even read The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss. What a fun day. I cherish these times with my little girl soon to be beyond wanting her mom to come into class and have fun with her peers. I think it is amazing how quickly we as adults forget the fun of playing in the dirt, playing with worms and planting seeds. I HOPE that I never grow up and get to serious in my lifetime to be unable to appreciate these little joys. Today’s happiness challenge is to play in the dirt or do any other silly fun, childlike thing you may have taken yourself too seriously to do in the past months, years. As Mark Twain said, “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind it doesn’t matter.”
