It’s Gratituesday! Today I’m thankful for the sweetness of elementary school-aged children. In many of them there still abides an innocence and freshness to their view of the world. I heard two jokes today from a friend’s daughter that reminded me of that precious time of life.
Giving credit where credit is due, these jokes came from the mouth of Kyrsten and brought a lightness to my heart and a smile to my face.
“Why did the football stadium get so hot when the game was over?
-Because all the fans walked out!”
I love the image of hundreds of spinning fans wobbling out of a stadium chatting about the game. Don’t you?
Then there was this one:
“Why can’t banks keep any secrets?
– because there are so many tellers.”
Ten years old, bright with a sense of humor that finds delight in simple, clean word play.There’s no guile, no manipulation, no hidden agenda. How wonderful those few precious years of newness and wonder! Reminds me of my own young childhood. How lucky I was to have had that.
Reminders that such a unsullied view of the world still exists make my heart grateful and give me hope.
