I woke up early this morning for my run. Achy and sore.
Standing at the sink filling my cup, I remembered that these aches were the result of an afternoon of fun.
Uninhibited fun with my daughter in our yard.
The sprinkler was on. My mini- me and I were in ruffled swimsuits. She’d run thru the water, jumping or twirling over the height of the water, and land in dramatic fashion. Hands on hips or arms outstretched. A variation of open mouth, smile or pursed lips. Then it was my job to copy it.
After every combination imaginable and a considerable amount of rural traffic, we shifted to handstands and synchronized cartwheels.
A blissful hour and worth all the aches this morning.
