Funny how something I wrote a year and a half ago still applies today... It's Friday... time for Five Minute Friday, and I can't even make my mind think straight to write... and then I remembered this treasure sitting in my drafts.
I wrote this a few summers ago, but for some reason I never published it. Now it's time for me to go to bed and I just didn't have it in me to write today, so I thought I would just share this...
I missed some Five Minute Friday prompts when I took a bloggy break over the summer, so when I was looking for something to write about, I gave the prompt of See a try...
The first thing they see is Santa's sleigh. Believe it or not, I see it, too! Then it's cats and dogs and dragons. Great white puffy clouds that to a child's imagination are so much more. Pretty soon whole adventures and stories are emerging from the minds of my kids. All based on clouds.
They get excited … and noisy. Almost too noisy for the confines of our mini-van. And I want to hush them time and time again. But I don't and I'm glad I don't. Because when you can see, when you have vision, you just can't be contained.
And I wonder, what happened to my childlike vision? Where are my dreams and day dreams and stories? When did I allow fear and uncertainty to take over?
Because somewhere deep inside the stories, the imagination, the vision is there … I just have to see it.
Here's to seeing the adventures and sharing our stories!!
