Reaching for the Sun

¬†I asked the children to touch the sun. “That’s impossible¬†” they all laughed together at such a silly notion.

I am too small to touch the sun.

“We are just too small.” the six-year-old explained with all the wisdom of his years. I suggested they climb higher, reach higher, try harder.

So they climbed the tower at the park.

They climbed to the top


One by one, they reached as high as they could climb


and they touched the sun

.They touched the sun

They held the sun in their hand


Even the skeptical six-year-old succeeded and learned that he is not too small after all.

. Grandma’s aren’t so silly after all.
