Even my teenager (who is a clean freak by nature) was embracing the mud. They wiggled their toes in it…danced and twirled and even tried to drag me in. I snapped away, capturing a “childhood sibling moment” I wanted them to be able to recall even after years had passed. It’s the moment I want to savor and capture. I don’t ever want to be so scheduled, or disciplined or grown up to enjoy even the dirtiest of days that life brings my way.
