Chasing Bubbles

Dealing with Autism has it’s own share of struggles.  But there’s something to be said about the joys of it.

Take for example the simplicity of blowing bubbles.  There’s such an innocence that goes with that.

A soapy, sometimes filmy round orb, that gets created and carried by the wind.

Somehow it captures our imagination, and wants us to follow it until it bursts.

 

 

But it’s just like a child to run around and chase those bubbles, and play around with the simple things in life.

There’s something to be said about that simplicity, how something as silly as a soapy bubble can bring such joy.

I see short stack chasing bubbles, and am reminded not to get stressed out about life….but rather enjoy it.

Until later…..as short stack needs some more bubbles to chase.

 

When was the last time you played with bubbles?

    omg I love bubbles, here I am, should be looking and applying for colleges and I just want to see how a big of a bubble I can hold in my hand (blowing bubbles with your hands and dish soap is the best)

    The last time I played with bubbles was on the first day of school. My friends had brought back tubes of them from Holland so we just played with them all over our school’s courtyard.

    We’re in 10th Grade.

    I was at the park while watching my professors kids two years ago. She was about three or four and he was eight or nine. It was before we went to the pool and after we played rockband in the garage. (This was actual rockband with a drum set and a guitar with three strings.) 

    It was also the day that the two/three year old was re-introduced to the principle of “sharing.” 
    There was bliss. 🙂

    The parable of bubbles!
    Oh for the faith and simplicity of a child! One of the many things we learn from our Asperger children. Bubbles are so fleeting – beautiful for a moment and gone forever. We need to enjoy the present instead of worrying about tomorrow.

    The joys of bubbles.  I use them with the little ones at my church while I watch them- and it never ceases to delight them.  Last time was probably earlier this month.  Bubbles erase stress somehow.

    im not sure i would say theres joy with dealing with autism…..its not the autism that has joy, its the simple things in every day life that bring joy. bubbles are one of lifes simpliest joys, and its hard to find someone who wouldnt say seeing bubbles makes them smile. more adults need to take a breath and blow some bubbles 🙂

    A couple of weeks ago because the kids love them almost as much as I do.

    The last time I saw bubbles! I hope that bubbles still fascinate me when I’m 80…

    One time I almost missed a calculus exam because I was following a butterfly.
