a daze in the maize.

today I went to my small town’s annual pumpkin patch. while enjoying the sun beams on my back and the company of good friends, i couldn’t be more grateful for the beauty surrounding me. walking through the corn maze brought back countless memories of past autumn seasons. running until i couldn’t catch my breath, trying to find the way out before anyone else. it brought me back to a time when i marveled at even the smallest adventure. i could find fun in any small task. the way the corn stalks made my skin itch and the “squash” of the mud under my feet. there are so many things to take wonder in, in this world, yet so many fail to do so when the opportunities arise. sometimes we all wish we were small again, with our lives ahead of us, but what is so different now, then things used to be? deep down we are still those little souls trying to find our way in the maze (life, maybe). don’t underestimate the fact that enjoyment comes in all shapes and sizes, to anyone who is willing to receive it with open arms, no matter your age, size, talents or past. take joy in the little things, whether it be taking a walk in your neighborhood, going through a corn maze in fall or spending time with people who make you smile. be grateful for everything. don’t keep your head down, or you’ll miss the natural beauty hiding in the corn & sky.
