i sometimes do!

why didn’t i think of that…
wow her design is really neat… i want that…
how did she make that…
how did she do that…
i wish i had one of those…
she sure has lots of readers…
i wish i had a bigger following like that …
i want her hair…
oh i want those boots
wow look at that… oh look at those… gosh i wish…
………

i think it is natural…
we want to be loved… want to be witty… smart… clever… pretty… creative…
but i find when i am in a “comparing mood”…
i leave no room inside of me…
no room to grow…
no room to reflect within myself…
to BE who i might be.

sort of like picking out a pumpkin.
there are SO many!
i find it truly amazing HOW unique each one.

the other day i tried to find a pair… you know for symmetry…
it’s HARD…
you can’t find two exactly the same!
they’re all different.

i finally grabbed one that looked good.
not perfect…
some things about it could be better.
it was too small…
had quite a few imperfections…
and frankly it just was not the perfect pumpkin i had in mind.

but i grabbed it…
brought it home…
and you know…
i think she’ll work!

i’m going to work with her…
look at all the pretty things about her…
after all she has a really good stem…
and i just know she’s FULL of really good seeds!

 
i do love that we are ALL truly unique… truly beautiful inside & out…
JUST the pick…
JUST the right one…
the perfect pumpkin WE should BE!

holding onto to all the precious things of a little one.
they just grow up TOO fast!

like little weeds they burst onward and upward.
reaching new heights it seems EACH day.

new words… new choices… new independent attitudes.
all to find their way… their UNIQUE voice.

it sure is neat to see them twirl about and GROW.
each stage being truly beautiful all it’s own.

as we make sure to tend… nurture… grab a hold…
of each of their little blooms.

isn’t it amazing how EACH one of their stems… their traits… are SO different…
ALL colorful… ALL pretty…  ALL strong…
yet all VERY individual.

working together to make up their very OWN… beautiful… EVER changing bouquet!

hello there...
