Sunshine and Sanity

Sunshine. Honestly, sunshine. The blue sky started peeking through the clouds and actual sunshine appeared.

sunshine actually appeared in the sky

The sun actually appeared in our sky!

We danced. We sang. We wrestled. Ok, sure, that might sound like a normal day for us, but we did it with such enthusiasm. And when the regular time for our walk around our neighborhood came . . . there was no rain! So we walked! We might have been a wee bit excited.

Just a wee bit

Just a wee bit.

Yes, sanity has returned. Normalcy has returned.

Well . . .

Well . . .

Ok, fine, our definition of sanity and normalcy has returned.

    Seeing them so joyful just being out for a walk shows that it’s the simple things in life that bring the most happiness.
