Now what's this all about, again?
These daily lists of playing,
What's the point?
And then I smiled.
It's about celebrating.
Celebrating being enchanted,
celebrating life with these babes,
celebrating what's in our hearts,
celebrating the power of our bodies...
Celebrating lying on the grass, and doing what you do best.
Celebrating by swingin' across on the rope swing.
And celebrating sunshine and bare feet.
Celebrating freedom, and ingenuity.
"Mom. I did some engineering, and stabilized the volleyball net. Wanna come see?"
Of course I do.
Anchored to a bucket of sand, water, and a hand-weight, for extra power. :) Brilliant.
Celebrating the freedom to spend time in the sunshine at the patio table, playing games.
Celebrating the freedom to be dogs and kitties and wrestle with your sibling in the backyard.
Even if you're ten.
It's about recognizing the wonder and beauty of Life Magic,
and filling our life up with sooooo much of it,
that it becomes ordinary Life Magic.
Yeah. That's what we're doing here.
And that will do.
