There are some things in life that every one must experience for themselves. Some things that you just have to experience; right?
Must have experiences that quickly come to mind are:
Chocolate; everyone should experience chocolate in their life.
Ice cream; another must!
Walking barefoot in the sand.
Skydiving! (I know some of you may disagree, but you obviously haven't tried it then!)
Motherhood. (Ok, I realize that cuts a lot of you out, too, but as a mother, I do have to include it!)
Falling in the snow.
Catching a snowflake on your tongue.
Roasting a marshmallow by a campfire.
Singing in the rain.
A full moon.
A falling star.
Freely dancing without a care in the world.
I know I'll think of a hundred more things after I post this, but I'm sure you get my point.
So imagine my surprise when we were watching a commercial and the "Sound of Music" came on and I started singing….
and my niece had no idea what it was! I explained to her that this was a must for our family. The Drama Queen nodded her head in agreement and handed me the movie immediately!
As I type this, the Princess is contentedly watching and humming along.
And the world will be set right again for yet another day!
