*Since, I normally write about stuff inspired by scripture… today I decided to shake things up a bit and write about something that happens in my everyday life… and it just so happens that this is what is called for in this week’s DPchallenge (Daily Post Challenge). I like this theme, so I may try my hand at it again soon! Look out mundane… I’m running past ya!
While doing the laundry this morning, my eldest, Caylee, approaches me and proceeds to tell / show me the following:
“Last night, me and Brenna had a parade … This was one of the floats… cute, huh?! We also used the oatmeal and grits boxes … we put bead puppies on top and they threw cotton feathers!!”
This of course, explained the catastrophic state of their room this morning 8 / … lol!
At least they’re being creative, having a good ole time, and making memories, right?! Love my girls, and am so glad they use their imaginations everyday!!
Sometimes, I feel like my “imaginator” is broken. Life just wears down on us Big people doesn’t it? I often forget the times I enjoyed playing with rollie pollies,
finding images in the clouds,
and making clover necklaces.
So many great memories from when I was kid came from being outside in nature and not inside on the computer, watching t.v., or playing video games. God has given us such a beautiful World to enjoy!
And he even gave us dandelions…to make wishes upon!
What is the point of this post, you may ask? I guess, nothing really, just a post of gratefulness for the opportunity to wake up and be alive today! Also… a reminder to keep using your imagination and to enjoy EVERY aspect of life! Everyday! I don’t want to get so caught up in the “important” tasks of life that I forget the “little” things, which can in fact be the Big things if you choose your perspective, wisely ; )
What memories do you enjoy most from your childhood?
