A boy and his mountain

My boy.  So loving, so tender, and so inquisitive.  He appreciates things that most 4 year old boys don't.  For example - nature, the sunshine, the clouds, natural beauty.  We will often drive down the road and he will sigh and say "Heavenly Father gave us such a beautiful day today!"

For days, he has been asking to drive up to the mountains so he could admire the city from up high.  And he really said that!  He is so wise and sometimes it catches me off guard.  So on Monday, we took Sariah to a play date and we drove up the mountain.  He sat on the wall for a good 5 minutes, simply gazing.  I could tell he was thinking.  I wonder if the spirit was talking to him, and helping him feel the beauty of life and family and joy.
