#0791 The Place

Inner Peace Be Upon You

# 0791 Peace and Blessings Every Day
The Place
I took my two oldest boys somewhere recently that they enjoyed
so much they didn't want to come back home.

It was a place where there were all kinds of rides and fun
things to see, do and play with. Every town has one of these
places no matter how small.

I know people are on a tight budget nowadays, but I truly
believe this is a place everyone can afford if they really
wanted to.

I can remember my parents carrying me to this place many times
and how much fun I had as a little boy, and I'm sure you do to.

Even though it seems like you could stay there all day and
night, they do have a closing time and then you have to go home.

The place I am talking about is outside.

No I'm not talking about a town fair or carnival that is
outside.  I am simply talking about just plain old outside.

The rides I was referring to are tricycles and bicycles.
The fun things to see, do and play with are flowers, dirt,
sticks, and pine cones. The closing time is when the lights
turn down (the Sun). The memories are priceless, but the cost
is also priceless.

That's right, it is free to go outside.

I took my kids outside the other day and what a time they had.

The older we get in life the more it takes to entertain and
fascinate us. Most adults would not get the same thrill out of
an amusement park as kids get out of going outside.

Many times what we think our kids want and need are not what
they actually want and need. A child would grow tired of
playing with a $1,000 remote-controlled helicopter by themselves
faster than they would just blowing daffodils into the wind and
watching it's miniature parachutes land.

You see with kids, it's not just what they have or do more so
than it is with whom they are with.

Children value time and attention from parents much more than
gifts. I bought each of my young boys their own set of drums.
Sure they played with them a lot the first week, but after that
they had more fun when I got down on the kitchen floor with
them and turned over three pots as if they were drums and beat
on them with them with spoons and spatulas.

Don't mistake me, I never said Mom enjoys hearing the "noise,"
nor does she enjoy the thought of us beating on her good pots
and pans. But it warms her heart just to know her kids have a
tight bond with their father.

I bought my kids the best brand new $300 video game with extra
controls, the latest games and even got extra memory to save the
place in the game. A week later, I packed it all up and took it
back to the store. I had just spent over $500 on a game that
had the latest 3D graphics. I was frustrated on one hand but
learned a valuable lesson on the other.

I took them outside, got some pinecones and handed them a stick.
I was the pitcher and they were the batters. No game on the
expensive console could match the laughter and enjoyment that my
kids showed while knocking a home run (hitting the pinecone out
of the yard) with a stick.

The next time you want to give your kids the very best in
entertainment, try a neat place called outside.
