The Value of Being in the Moment

On the corner the grass is covered in yellow dandelions. I see them going to seed and hundreds of airborn weeds head my way. I turn to my six-year-old son and with an exasperated gesture, exclaim, “Look at that!”

He responds in awe, “Isn’t it BEAUTIFUL?”

Humbled, I look again at the stunning golden carpet and say, “yes, it is indeed beautiful.”

Where I see weeds, he sees beauty.
