Child's Play

Every day I find the beauty in something , some place, some one. My daughter is my every day "reminder." Her incredible spirit, beauty and ability to make me laugh at any given moment is an every minute occurrence.
Children remind us to slow down, take it easy and be child-like. We need to play and laugh more and worry less about getting the dishes done. We don't need to look at the clock every five minutes and hope the wash is through the first cycle.
A child's smile is so telling. Watch a child at play and find calm, not frantic running, just joy.
Children's toys and clothes can be a simple reminder to just stop, breathe, enjoy and let it all go.
Here are a few things, found on Etsy, that are wonderful works of art and creativity, and reminders of staying child-like.... Enjoy!
