I saw this video last night and watched it about 40 times. It’s adorable. It also made me nostalgic for my Twins’ childhood. This video pretty much summed it up, simple pleasures.
Raising twins on my own wasn’t easy. I was thankful for a good car, a great job, and a strong support system. Even with that, there were times I had to completely humble myself and say, “I need help.” I hated that part, not being able to do it all on my own. It took a long time to understand that actually, we’re not supposed to do it all on our own. I realized that to accept the kindness of others opens you up to pass it on. Good lesson.
But when things were good, my Z’s enjoyed the simple pleasures of life. The security of knowing their loved ones would pick them up when they needed and let them run through the puddles if that’s what made them happy. They’re both filled with a lot of stress right now, normal for college aged/working young adults, but I wish they were back where puddle jumping with your bff made your day. I wish I won the lotto so I could at least take away some of their stress even knowing that they’ll be better and stronger for their lessons and struggles of today.
But for now I’ll enjoy the memories, and wish for them to find some simple pleasures today.
In the struggle between yourself and the world, second the world.
