When I was a little girl, we had a Merry Go Round in the nearby shopping plaza. It didn't matter if my best friend and I had to walk a hundred miles, I think we would have gotten there just to have some fun. Speaking of fun, I just adore Mindy Gledhill's music.
I can still remember the thrill I had one day, when I reached over from my horse on tippy toes to reach for a ring. There were lots of silver ones, but only one brass ring. It was hard for a short little girl to even reach one, no less the prize. That day while holding on for dear life I caught it! The Brass Ring, I smile just remembering that day.
Funny how fear goes out the window when we are young and we will take a risk to reach for something exciting.
I think when we grow up
we should still reach for the brass ring.
You never know
what blessing might be waiting for us.
Mary from Little Red House posts a prompt each Thursday. Today's prompt is the word Round. For some reason the Merry Go Round came to mind, and then I remembered I had some lovely photos that I shared in a post about Heritage Gardens in Sandwich, Massachusetts.
Thank you Mary. I love being challenged and inspired. You always lead me to both.
