on the bed
I was allowing it
I needed to allow it
blowing bubbles in the yard
running through the sprinklers
were all much needed for me this weekend
because when you're an adult woman with
the cares of life
its good to remember what it was like
just to be a girl
and when you're an adult woman with
an inner child who feels like she's suffocating
hearing little girls
is just the thing you need to breathe again
The little one came to inform me...
"We made a fort... We built a house... We made a home"
and I smiled when I saw how they
used a jump rope
tied to a bin
and stuffed into the pocket of a backpack
to hold their house together
If only it were that simple...
to hold a house together
But when these girls get together
there is fun
there is laughter
there is jumping on the bed
the perfect combination of friendship, girlhood, and sisterhood
and I am reminded that...
"Love can turn any house into a home"
