There is one thing even better than all this. This one thing is what I envy about kids the most. They can experience true joy from the simplest things. Kids have not yet been jaded by the difficulties of life. They have not yet given up hope on mankind. They haven't had their spirit broken.
Kids are simply good. From that 100% goodness they can create the most perfect laughter and the most joyous smiles.
They can be overjoyed by seeing a bird or a dog. Kids can laugh for hours when playing with balloons or bubbles. When is the last time you bought something at Wal Mart for a couple bucks and were truly excited? Kids do it every day.
I would love to go back to a place where life seemed perfect. It would be great to live again before any real hurt or pain entered our lives. Then we could find true happiness in a gentle breeze or watching a hummingbird flit around looking for nectar.
Sure we can find this type of joy occasionally, but it is never as full and enduring as the joy of a child.
After all some children even go crazy for rocks.
