Charming





The sun was shining as I sat in my yard today enjoying the wonderful warm breeze and admiring the new spring growth. Listening to the trickle of our waterfall I glanced over and my little friend caught my eye. There he was amongst a bed of beautiful white lantana. Know I am one of those woman who can disappear quickly back into the magic of childhood. My mind started to wander.."What if he really was a magical frog?" I imagined the stories of my youth running through my head. The beautiful Princess, so longing for love that she kisses a little frog as her last resort. The magical land that he would return to led me into a wonderful afternoon daydream. I thought about the day he arrived. My daughters with all their beautiful innocence placed him in the perfect place next to the pond and appropriately named him "Charming" I asked myself often, "Where does our imagination disappear to?" "Why do we need to loose our sense of wonder and the simple thought that Life is magical"? I wondered what I would wish for. What would I truly desire? One wish ladies, what would it be? I am reminded of a phrase that once popped into my head in a moment of silence.."Boredom is purely a lack of Imagination" Today, join me in adding a little bit of your inner child into your "Big Girl" life. Find something that allows you to dream a little and helps you find the magic again. I would love to hear the stories.

Imagine,
Heather

Oh Heather, I sincerely wish you success and fulfillment on your new blogging endeavors. May you keep growing in mind and spirit and let it flow through your journals...for this will be one of the first places its documentation will become evident. And I hope to witness it all!
