What is a Charis kind of day?
Sunny, warm, and filled with interesting things to do:
Watching the chickens,
Playing with Zephyr,
Picking up rocks,
Playing "he loves me, he loves me not" with a pine-cone,
Dragging your feet in the gravel to listen to the sound as you walk, and
Sitting in the grass absorbing the sun while looking cute!
It means you walk all the way from the barn, down the hill to the lower pasture, halfway across the pasture to see the horses, back to the gate, all the way down the road to the back pasture, halfway across the pasture to the cabin, and then over to the pond! In other words, you walk half a mile all by yourself and refuse to be carried, accepting only a fingerhold on Grandma's hand! It means you're a little trouper!
It means you giggle when you get kisses.
It means that after that long walk to the back pasture, you're still ready to tackle the big hill! (Although no one could blame you if you got distracted from your goal by trying to feed hay to Zephyr!)
And finally, it means you're broken-hearted at having to be carried back to the house by Grandpa--but you forgive him when he takes you out to play in the leaves after lunch. It also means you're ready for a third outdoor adventure after your nap. And it probably means you'll sleep well tonight!
