― Pablo Picasso
I have to chuckle as I think of this babe painting on my mom's porch. Watching my niece explore and use her imagination reminds me that anything is possible. As I take in her creative ways, I feel a tender nudge to tap into my own creative sense. I see her ask for what she needs and then revel in the delight of her creation. She jumps for joy. She giggles with joy. She revels in the little moments of life.
While she was painting yesterday, she was so intent on the task at hand that she didn't seem to notice any of the other distractions around her. I watched her squeal with delight as she created images on her canvas. As I stared at her lines and squiggles, I wondered what she saw.
I watched as she walked through the wet paint. Stopping for a moment to notice why her feet were sticking to the paper. She paused for another short moment as she continued her creation. I leaned in and carefully asked, "Sweetie what are you painting?"
This babe has it figured out. Spending time with her always causes me to tap into a whole other world. As you move through your day, can you tap into your imagination to create possibilities for your life? If you look at the events of your life, can you see more than meets the eye? What would happen if you tapped into your childlike wonder? Go for it my friends...use your imagination and watch your world expand!
So grateful for this little chicky who is my teacher, niece, super cool babe, and amazingly kind soul that agreed to be part of my family! Feeling like we are going to imagine up some pretty amazing times together.
May You Sweetly Seek:)
