For those few days that Blogger was not working, I despaired over all the great blog post ideas I had, but couldn’t post.
And now-my mind is a blank page. I am at a loss as to what to write-my great ideas washed away with the rain that fell last weekend.
And so I am giving you a cute Amy story…
The summer before Amy turned 5, we flew from Seattle to Baltimore. On the way to the Seattle airport, Amy pointed out a broken down car on the side of the road. It was missing a wheel. “That’s too bad,” we responded. “That car won’t be going anywhere, will it?”
Hours, and nearly 3000 miles later, as we were driving away from the Baltimore airport on our way to my in-laws house, Amy became very excited. “Look!” she shouted. “I see the missing wheel from that car!” And sure enough-there was a wheel on the side of the road.
We laughed quietly to ourselves, but we didn't have the heart to tell Amy that she was mistaken-and that the wheel on the side of the road in Baltimore couldn’t possibly belong to the car on the side of the road in Seattle. She was just too happy with herself and her discovery.
Oh to have the mind of a child, chock full of imagination, creativity, and belief that anything is possible.
I’d never be short on blog post ideas again!
