Yesterday, these two happy children rambled about their little "camp" having a tea party.
It was too precious to pass up.
I felt I had been transported into a Sandra Kuck painting.
They danced, sang, chased robins, drank several cups of "tea",
and finally were drawn away by the lure of kittens darting about their play area.
Tea in the afternoon is always a delightful affair, don't you think?
I smile as I watch them play.
Brothers and sisters engaged in happy play is a joyous occasion for a mama.
For a little while, anyway, the 3,000 times I have told them to
"Be Kind and Loving to Each Other" is paying off.
I am reminded of a favorite quote from June Masters Bacher,
"Every act of kindness moves to a larger one
'til friendships bloom to show what little deeds have done."
Such sweet pastimes as these help in making brothers and sisters best friends.
It is often the simple pleasures in life, when shared with one another, I think,
that make for the most endearing memories.
