I sat basking under the sun with my brother and partner next to a giant hole a few kids dug in the sand before we arrived. Meanwhile a young boy kicking a giant beach soccer ball quickly ran past trying to stop his ball before it hit us. I smiled at the boy who continued to hang around our little fortress of relaxation as he spotted the hole. He looked at me and quietly asked if he could play in it. Happily laughing I tell him "of course you can!"... only to watch him jump up excitedly and call over two other boys. They all immediately hopped in and out as they tried to figure out how they would cover themselves in the sand. The discoverer looked at me again asking if I would help put sand over them. After seeing their relatives near by I joined them in their mission. I continued to witness and enjoy the release of their laughter snapping a few pics for memories.
There are many unseen moments of bliss happening nearly every second. So often we walk past strangers and miss out on experiences that can ultimately bring us happiness even if for a brief moment. Take the time to truly appreciate everyone around you that exudes the purity of life.
I may never cross paths with these bright young boys, but their light and joie de vivre will always be cherished.
