Several weeks ago, we decided to take the boys to one of the many nearby parks here in Rome. It really is amazing how great you can feel just by spending a couple of hours in some green space. The boys always love to be able to run and play without one of us demanding they hold a hand or watch out for cars zooming past us. We had recently bought a kite on a whim when we saw if for only 5 euro and this particular Sunday evening was the perfect autumn day to try it out.
It was a wonderful and playful time of running, laughing, enjoying the sunset, and tackling one another with hugs. We are so thankful to the Lord Jesus for abundantly blessing us with each other and for special little moments like these in the midst of everyday, busy life. If only we would all spend more time with those we love to send a kite soaring.
