Took my kids to Del Taco today and my 6-year-old son David was really excited to get a taco kids meal with a toy. There was something about the excited look on his face over something so simple and rather unimportant.
That got me thinking about how much I miss that child like enthusiasm. I wish I could look at the world just one more time through the eyes of a child. I wonder what it must feel like to not have a real care in the world and have new experiences.
I hope I’m able to keep my children innocent and sheltered from this harsh world as long as possible so that they can find joy in the little things. Oh, how I wish I could turn back time and protect myself from losing my innocence and joy when I was actually younger than what David is now. Then again if I had perhaps I wouldn’t understand the value of sheltering my children from this wicked world….
