I found an interesting post when I stopped by Teresa's blog and she was doing a post based on five words she was given. She invited us to play along if we wanted and you know me, the avid gamer, I asked her to send me my 5 words. If you too are interested, leave me a comment and your email address and I too will send you 5 random words.
We love to play around here, we try to use our imagination as much as possible but lately we spend hours playing with Mr.Potato head . I wish more people realized the importance of sitting on the floor with your child and giving them the one on one attention they desire.
The truth isn't always nice ! When I was younger I was too honest, I spoke what I thought and it didn't matter what or who I crushed along the way . Well now I am happy to say I try to be as sensitive as possible because how you and others feel is so important. I also think that you get back what you put into the universe and for awhile I wasn't getting so much good back . Riaan is a very sensitive child and I am always concerned people wont " get " him because of that . My husband is sweet as could be, sometimes too sweet when he needs to speak up and sometimes he lacks sensitivity when I think he needs to show it .
It is such a learned skill.You have to learn to listen to yourself and too others. I struggle when people just wont listen or budge about an opinion. My husband on the other hand has very selective hearing :)We work on emotions in our home on a daily basis and the more you speak about emotions the easier it is to listen and accept a persons emotion. You learn you cant control emotions of others.
We live in Seattle and does it rain . Today is poured and we sat and listened to it at 6am. They didn't have much rain in Virgina and wow did I miss it .
I have always wanted to dance in the rain. I didn't do it tell I had kids . It is amazing once you become a mother you see love in so many different ways.
The show popped in my head right away even though I have never seen even a single episode. In the sadness and the darkness of this world I think we all survive to the best of our abilities. We all have times in our lives we don't want to survive but it is in those moments we show the most strength.
