Yes, sometimes I still feel like I’m 12… maybe 10.
I’m OK with that.
I’ve always felt like I have an “old-soul”
if I feel young at times,
I am grateful.
I recently got Kindle on my phone
have been enjoying free books from Amazon (who-a-knew-a-such-a-thing-existed).
download a sample of Chrystal Evans Hurst’s,
“She’s Still There:
Rescuing the Girl in You.”
I didn’t really feel I needed rescuing,
she’s a fun writer.
I enjoyed her work.
It does have me pondering my past,
my little girl dreams…
I remember laying in the front yard watching the clouds,
When I drove by my childhood home earlier this week,
they have ripped out the bushes
that surrounded that front yard…
that made it feel private
After having the house
in our family
for 46 years,
I’m still a little bitter.
I miss it.
Especially the gardens
VAST backyard – full of trees, a creek – woods to explore,
I do that a lot.
I like to explore
In Chrystal’s book,
she made a comment about wanting a house on the beach
when she was a kid…
I use to want to live in another country.
I still have dreams of living somewhere else…
I dream of mission trips too (which reminds me, I need to check with my good friend about exploring via mission trips… you know who you are, and I know you don’t like bugs,
I bet there’s something we could do/go with JMM…).
Needless to say,
I’ll be spending time pondering my childhood dreams in the days to come. If I have more to add… I will. Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!
