Where Is She?

"A child''s world is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood." By: Rachel Carson

I'm celebrating the "inner-child" this week and inviting you to come out and play, too. Let your imagination take wings and fly; find that which has been dimmed for whatever reason.
Here's a little meme to help us remember those earlier days of wonder.

Who is your inner-child? Tell us with your answers below:

I- I love Peeps
N- Never-Never Land
N- Never say can't
E- Everything is possible
R- Rainy days and thunder (I love them)

C- Cookies with vanilla frosting
H- Happy reading my books
I- Ice cream cone with dipped cherry topping
L- Laughing out loud and often
D- Dreaming of summertime bike rides

***Copy and paste your answers under my comments and feel free to add this meme to your own blog.

Embrace the child who lives within. Look for her....let her play....she's still there.
Blessings, Barbara

Now that child's off to find some green, for the "wearin' of the green" that goes hand in hand with March 17th!

OMG! I wrote a long comment and only N showed up? oh oh~! now I don't remember what I said about copywriting....or, I do, but I hate to re-create it... and then I wrote a lovely "thank you" note because someone lovely and beautiful sent me a lovely and beautiful pashima...and i told of how I'd just opened a birthday gift from GMR and it was a pretty dress, but it needed a wrap and how I wondered what wrap i'd find to go with it, and when I opened all my mail, there it was, the most lovely and perfect beautiful wrap to go with the dress! How could this person have known the perfect thing~! THank you ... I am honored to have this gift....and to have it be the perfect item to go with the new dress is a bonus....I wrapped it around me - luxury....oh, thank you thank you

I'm so glad I rechecked my comments or else you'd have just seen "n"....~!
