Don’t know why I am so crazy about bubbles, perhaps it’s because they float miraculously in the air for milliseconds before they pop, or because they reflect all the colors in the rainbow, or because they touch a childlike wonder and awe inside me. I don’t know what took them so long but bubbles were inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame in 2014.

Even the word Bubble is Fun. Whatever the reason, I think they are one of God’s little miracles!

Who wants to eat soap? I do!

My neighbors who live a few blocks away have a bubble-making machine at the end of their driveway that on most days, pumps bubbles out into the street. I always make a special effort to drive by, even if it’s a little out of my way. I don’t know them but I like these people. Some day I hope to tell them why!

Bubbles create smiles. Nothing more needs to be said. Create some smiles!

You are never too old to blow a bubble wand and tap into childlike wonder . . .


Two bubbles found they had rainbows on their curves. They flickered out saying: “It was worth being a bubble, just to have held that rainbow thirty seconds.”

– Carl Sandburg
