Children Play With Earth

This is one of my favorite photos* ever!

Here’s the story: when my younger son was eight years old, he was out playing in the yard and he called for me, so I opened the back door, and this is what I saw… his sweet little hands, with dirt in his fingernails, offering me two palms full of wild violets! Of course I had to run grab the camera before receiving his gift. What a precious moment in time!

I especially love the dirt on his hands. It reminds me of the short but powerful song by Arrested Development, “Children Play With Earth.”

May All Beings Be Happy!
