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.
