“Some memories are unforgettable, remaining ever vivid and heartwarming.” ~ Joseph B Wirthlin
It’s a wonderful thing to live as an adult with the heart of a child, still full of wonder.
We’re never too old to engage in childhood activities like taking a trip down the sliding board, pumping higher and higher toward the skies on a swing, wading in the waters of a rippling stream, getting messy with finger paints or diving into an ice cream Sundae with such zeal that it ends up all over our face.
The day after Christmas my son, his gal, my husband and I walked into Michael’s Craft Store, looking for a picture frame for a photograph of the two of them they had given us for Christmas.
“Pick out a frame you are happy with,” said Marc, “it will complete the present.”
Before we were finished shopping my son said “Mom, did you see what’s at the front of the store? You might be interested. Go pick one out for yourself.”
“I followed his orders and have enjoyed being a child all over again – all wrapped up into something that used to bring me hours of pleasure as a child.”
According to this article from Business Insider, I am not the only one who is having fun revisiting my childhood!
On some of these long, dark winter evenings, coloring has been a good change of pace from reading.
