Everyone possesses some sort of creativity. For some people that creative side is a lot larger. People like my friend Natalya who is like a walking piece of art. She is passionately creative; it fills up her whole being. My friend Debbie likes to make beautiful gifts for people when her creative energy starts flowing. She makes beautiful gift baskets and cards and really lovely things to give away to those she loves.
Some people are more focused and structured and don’t exude quite as much flair as Natalya or as much craftiness as Debbie, but I’m convinced everyone has a creative bone in their body whether they know it or not. And I would encourage everyone reading this today to tap into that creative side and show your love in a creative way. You certainly don’t have to put together a big gift basket, but you can bake cookies or write a love note or even wash the car…
The other day my daughter Bridget washed her big sister, Shaylah’s car just because. She was not asked to do it nor was she paid to do it. She simply did it to show her love in the way of a kind gesture. Shaylah of course was thrilled and thought it was the sweetest thing…not to mention her car really needed a good wash. And though Bridget never expects anything in return for her good deeds (that’s just how she is) something tells me Shaylah will be much more willing to give her a ride somewhere next time she needs a lift.
So what are you willing to do? How can you put a little thrill into someone’s heart today? Maybe you know someone who is having a hard time and could use a little pick me up. Tap into that creative bone you have and think of something you’re capable of doing to put a smile on someone’s face. It doesn’t have to be crafty or filled with talent or cost you money; it can be as simple as grabbing a bucket full of suds, a couple of rags and taking a few minutes to wash a car. Hmm…come to think of it…something tells me a special dad in your life may appreciate that kind gesture this weekend. Just a thought!
Coming home from work and seeing the neighbor kids running thru the sprinkler on a hot day. I jumped in clothes and all. The look of surprise on their faces was SO worth it! Spontaneous and fun! Marie
I grew up on the West Side of Chicago where we put fences around the little patches of grass. My mom tended the grill all day, we did it the slow way. Oh, and getting to play outside, jumping double dutch in the street because they would block off traffic. We had block parties...music and food. Everyone would come out and sit on the concrete stairs. Rheda
Every summer since she was six, I've taken my niece camping. Two summers ago I was thrilled to be taking my, then 10-year-old niece on her first airplane ride from Maryland to Montana. We spent three days together exploring Yellowstone National Park, then we camped with my aunts and their horses up in the mountains and lastly we got in a day trip to Glacier. Rachel
My mom always used to throw the watermelon in the pool and we thought it was such a riot. Jay
I grew up in a small coastal town. Not much money and mom was a single parent. Last day of school meant discarding shoes for bare feet or flip flops we would wear out until our toes touched the ground. Spent the entire day outdoors and had no tv. Spent evenings at the docks watching fishing boats come in. Our neighbor mended fishing nets and she would sit in a metal lawn chair with us on the grass at her feet watching her needles fly. Another neighbor built boats and we would regularly inspect his progress. We were watched by the neighborhood parents and most importantly, we were safe. Sandra
