Stories of Kindness from Around the World

The Simple Joy of Blowing Bubbles


--by iferlamb, posted Mar 9, 2010

Earlier,  Aurelia posted a wonderful little piece entitled "Bubbles" and since I myself LOVE,  bubbles I had to read it.

She gave the most wonderful suggestion of giving bubbles to children.  I loved the idea.  I went to the store on my lunch break and bought an eight pack.  I gave one to the cashier there to give to any child she chose, as suggested in Aurelia's post, which made her smile.  I also have been giving them out to small children who come in the bank.  They are thrilled to receive them.   It gives me joy to see how happy it makes them to receive such a small gift.  One little boy did a dance right there.  I asked him if that was his happy dance.  He told me it was.  I told him I would dance too if someone gave me bubbles.  It was a wonderful exchange.

Children have so much to teach us!  All we have to do is pay attention to the small lessons and then apply what we have learned into our daily life.  Let us all have the joy of little children.  Hold on to your sense of wonder.  BLOW BUBBLES and be overjoyed in their beauty as they float heavenward. 

You know, you can put your troubles inside of those bubbles and watch them float out of sight.  It really does work.   Give it a try.  You have to really let it go.  That's the only hard part.  As you blow the bubble, envision your troubles going out of your body, carried out on your breath, filling the bubble and floating out of your sight, out of your concern, and out of your soul.  Feel the weight leave you.  You will feel lighter.

Donna wrote: Found ur story while looking for stories about bubbles. Loved it. Reason for my search is my granddaughter, who loves to blow bubbles, but wants to know where they go. She is still too young about putting worries in them, etc. , but i'm not! I love blowing bubbles with her. Children are the best thing our world has.

I love bubbles too, and one of my happiest memories is when my husband to be and i were traveling with friends and we kept blowing bubbles out the window of our car, to the delight of others. Also, in parks during concerts, etc. Etc.

Just love it. I think bubbles are always a perfect gift, and i love your concept of blowing your troubles away (i always visualized a balloon, but now i will see bubbles! ) hugs to you! :-)

"What's Up?" he asked and I told him about the Bubbles.

I also love the idea of the worries and troubles floating up towards heaven...giving our troubles to God.
