Our little boy taught us a lot about joy during the McDonalds’s Fun Run held at at McKinley Hill, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig this morning. While we were running as a family, he paused several times to look at the small details that captivated him along the way: sign boards, leaves and flowers, colorful hats, dogs, newly painted ground.
Although my husband and I were set to race along with other families, we had to stop several times to allow our little boy to appreciate the little things that caught his attention. “We need not rush.” Alex said. “Let’s just enjoy.” And that meant a lot.

Kyle reminded us that we can find joy from the little things around us if we only find time to touch, pause and appreciate them.
Thanks Mcdonald’s for inviting us and for sponsoring our first family run.It was indeed a fun run. 🙂
