He found this while clearing the garden and happily gave it to his daughter. I looked at this toy and imagined how it brought my husband joy as a child. Then my thoughts turned to the mini car my cousins and I used to play with when we were young.It was blue and we somehow took our turn to be pushed and went round and round the front yard.There were so much fun and laughter amidst the dust caused by never-ending running and pushing. We were sharing not only this beat down blue car but also a precious time together. And yes-we took turn without hesitation nor grudge because we have learned to be patient otherwise we would not be able to ride and be pushed again.
Those were the days! but I can still hear laughter and feel the heat of the sun. I could see how uncomplicated our world had been, how as youngters we enjoyed ordinary things and not worry. We were living in that moment and without knowing it this blue car was shaping our lives. We laughed at simple thing, we played, we shared and we created a special moment.
How about you? Any car and memory to share?
