Kids are so beautiful; they remind us to get out of our comfort zone and be playful. They remind us to take adventures, laugh, and to listen. Today’s reflection is a little personal. Yesterday my son said we should camp in the back yard. So I laughed and then quickly googled Canadian Tire/ Tent. We got in the car and purchased a $39 tent, came home and put it together. Threw the tent onto the trampoline and set up the inside with blankets, pillows and stuffed dinosaurs. We created a treetop campsite in our imaginations. Our bed time story was a journal that I wrote for him while I was pregnant. As I read the journal, he began to cry. He said, I feel so loved. I realized the gift of sleeping in nature. The gift of being present. Listening to the leaves move in the breeze, the birds singing in the morning, gazing at the stars and being present. Yesterday and most days, my son is my little guide reminding me to be open.
Today I invite you to listen to the playful child within and notice what they are asking you to explore.
Sending Infinite Love,
