Simple Things = Happiness and Freedom

My son bought a bike on Wednesday.

Simple sentence.

Simple thing to do, nothing complicated about buying a bike.

And yet,

It brought about feelings of happiness and freedom.

Rather the freedom that my son now has, brought about the feelings of happiness in him. I know and he does too, that the act of buying is not what made him happy. It’s the freedom he is now experiencing.

Where as before he had to walk to the local stores and he felt limited by not being able to go further than a few blocks from his apartment. The bike enables him to experience more, and he is excited about “getting out into the world” as he put it. ๐Ÿ™‚

He doesn’t have cable television, internet, a game system, or his own computer. He does have more freedom to explore.

Watching him experiencing happiness is also such a simple thing.

But seeing that brought great joy to this mother’s heart.

Have a wonderful weekend and find happiness in the simple things in your life. ๐Ÿ™‚
