Phoenix’s World

While we ate dinner last night, I couldn’t help smiling as I watched my son Phoenix, age 5. He was having the best time ever, making sounds pretending his carrots were cars and airplanes, laughing at his funny-looking kale chips and asking cheerfully how much more of his dinner he had to eat before he’d get his “danilla” ice cream.

This kid is pure joy. Pure Prana. And he doesn’t need a big fancy toy to find this joy.

Once, at Disney World, he was just as happy playing with a plastic fork (which he pretended was a space ship) as he was riding “It’s a Small World.”

Phoenix often attends meetings at our home office. He just likes to be around us and stays super quiet while we work. Yesterday, during one of those meetings, I asked him to please get a wet rag to wipe the twins’ faces (we were feeding them during the meeting).

He didn’t skip a beat, said “Sure Momma,” and came back moments later with . . . steel wool.

What I would do to live inside Phoenix’s world. For just one day.

Have the best day ever!
