Find Happiness in Your Backyard
I spent some time today in the backyard just rocking in an old wicker rocking chair I bought at a garage sale for $5. This pasty, white, glow-in-the-dark skin is not going to improve with me sitting inside (probably on the computer). Anyway, as I paused in my reading, I realized that soon my little girl will be joining me in the rocking. Looking towards the back fence, I envisioned us sprawled out on a blanket under the shade of the giant pine tree or maybe swinging in the hammock feeling the gentle warm breeze and listening the birds. There is so much we can do in our tiny backyard.
