You know, it strikes me today what little things bring delight. Because of the large trees in our area, squirrels seem to be everywhere! Now, that might mean nothing to some people, but in our family that has become a huge deal. Since we left Georgia our homes have not been surrounded by many trees, until now. We can look out the kitchen window and see at least two squirrels at any time. The other day we even saw a little rabbit! That was quite exciting for us.
Squirrels are such a simple little thing, and they are very commonplace. In fact, there are times when they can be downright pesky! But my children - as well as their parents! - are finding great delight in the little things of God's creation. What a blessing to have squirrels to remind us of the beauty in every day things!
