With the magazine fever in full force, hopes and dreams pop up everywhere. I overheard a conversation last weekend that put a smile on my face. As the kids played with legos, they discussed that they could possibly get in a magazine if they built something really cool (I believe they were referring to the Lego magazine). I love their dreaming and I will never squash that! Isn’t it such a lesson to us, as adults, to not let fear and insecurity overpower our dreams? With the world at our fingertips, why not dream and create with God!
The feature of this blog in Artful Blogging has caused much excitement around here. Once I got a copy in my hands, Miss Emma and myself sat on my bed and looked through the beautiful pages featuring so many talented bloggers. I read her my article, to which she gave a clapping ovation. Such a sweet, sweet girl! The kids have been delighted to see their faces in a real live magazine. I was pleased that their faces were somewhat concealed, but apparently my girlie would have liked it otherwise. The other day she told me, “I want to be in a magazine someday.” I said, “You are in a magazine.” “No, where you can see my face and everything.” With this girl’s style, there’s no doubt in my mind that she will be a fashion designer someday, maybe even landing a spot in a magazine. 🙂
