Children make it so much more fun

As mentioned in the last post, we are at Disneyland right now. We spent all day today, we will spend all day tomorrow, and then possibly a little time on Saturday before we head back home.

There are many things to be grateful for right now, that we enjoy enough prosperity to be able to come, that we have family who came with us, that we and our children are healthy enough to be able to hang out at D-land all day (not an insignificant feat), and so much more.

However, the thing that always stands out to me nearly any time we do anything special with or for our children is how much fun it is to watch them having fun. Honestly, it is the best thing ever. Sabrina is particularly enjoyable this time around as she is with her cousin McKenna and the two of them are like peas in a pod and they both just enjoy the HECK out of everything.

If it is this cool for me, can you imagine how cool it is for our Heavenly Father to watch us as we experience the joys of life and experience? There are always difficult parts, as parents we watch our kids fight, not listen to us, deal with pain or injury, but above all of those things, the stuff we remember and the stuff that brings us the most joy is being able to experience the joy of our children. To have someone who you love so much that your greatest joy is making them happy...what a precious blessing.
