Pure joy and happiness.

This is my cousin Jennifer. She is 44 years old. Because of complications during her birth, she suffered brain damage and has been mentally challenged ever since.

The other day I found her swinging on our swingset, watching a kite being flown in the distance. She was utterly, completely happy. It was a great thrill for her to swing and watch that kite toss about on the wind. I will never forget her look of tranquility.

She has the joy of a child and is blessed enough to be able to have that for the rest of her life. It’s a good lesson for me to remember to enjoy life. It is a blessing from God and worth my time to slow down and enjoy what He has given me.

Thanks, Jen, for the reminder!
