Today I’m linking up with Lisa-Jo for Five-Minute Friday.
The rules: Write for five minutes. No editing, revising, overthinking, or backtracking. Just write.
Today’s Topic: Imagine
Some days I wish I had the imagination she does.
Today, in a lucky moment, I snagged an almost-brand-new, Rapunzel, dress-up costume for her at a rummage sale for $1. (Told you it was a lucky moment.)
And when I brought it home and gave it to her, Oh. My. Goodness.
Her eyes lit up, she couldn’t WAIT to put it on, and
She. Became. Rapunzel.
She spun around, she danced, she talked to herself…she even sang songs with me from Tangled. Not that we spend our days singing “When Will My Life Begin?” or “At Last I See the Light”…
Did I just confess something here? 😉
And probably my favorite moment was when she took my hand, asked me to dance, and we spent a few minutes spinning circles, one of us getting extremely dizzy, and laughing together.
And then she informed me I that I was Flynn Rider. Ok, then…
But my point? And the heart of our moment? Was her imagination.
It etched yet another memory into this momma heart that will be there forever.
She saw the world through magical eyes today, all because of a simple find at a rummage sale.
She became Rapunzel.
And I got to go along for the ride.
