When I was a little girl I used to love blowing bubbles. Just to imagine getting my little hands on a tube of soapy water and a bubble making wand would put a smile on my face. I would run as the trail of bubbles followed me. Attempt to beat my own biggest bubble record before having it burst gently on my nose.
Now, I am well passed my elementary school years, however I do still like to keep a tube of bubbles close by. Why? Simply because I always want to remember those simpler times, when my only concerns were that I remembered to take a bath, brushing my teeth, and making my bed. And oh yes not having my Mama figure out, that I had hidden another book underneath my bed to read after lights out.
So with my bubble making wand in my hand…I am taking a pause. Remembering those simpler times again.
