[dropcap]S[/dropcap]he squeals with delight as the water shoots out of the hose cooling the hot wood beneath her feet.
This two year old's laughter fills not only the air but my heart as well. She dares to drink the water from the spout, lifting it close to her mouth with no hesitation. Her thirst is quenched but her zeal for exploration has only begun.
She admires how the water bends and sprays with the slight covering of her baby hand. How she thinks she can control the stream and the direction that it shoots fascinates her. I don't remember the last time I discovered something new and fascinating. My world is full of "been there and done that's" - how I yearn to let go of routine and journey down a path full of new-found treasures.
Her hand changes direction and the spray hits her square on. Instead of frustration, her squeals grow louder than before. She enjoys her lack of control. When the unexpected happened, instead of giving in she gives out a joyous shout. Oh, how this child is teaching me.
