The sand beneath my feet is white and squeaky, my children are smiling, they are wild and free, and I can taste the freshly picked strawberries in my mouth.

I sometimes wish more days could be so simple. Would we appreciate them as much if every day was like this? I’d like to think I could. We hear things like we need to feel heartbreak to appreciate love, or we need to know sadness to feel grateful for happiness? Is that true? Or do we just believe it because it makes the hard times easier to take?

I am not sure. All I know is days like this make me happy.

What do you believe?
