Do you ever wish you were a child again? That all seemed right in the world,when your imagination could take you any where you wanted to go! It would be wonderful,would it not? It seems to me though that in this day and time...childhood isn't as fun as it was years ago. Children don't seem to need imagination as much as they once did. Technology seems to provide them with little need to imagine now. Very sad case to me! Toys are not as wonderful as they once were. Just scan the toy isles of Walmart next time you shop.....so different from the toys of yesteryear. Yes,there are still some nice toys out there but,you must look hard to find them. I prefer buying the "old school style" for my grandchildren. Toys that encourage the imagination,etc. Sadly they outgrow them all to fast these days. Why must children grow up so fast? My own childhood was brief..and as said before....I sometimes long to return. But if honest,most of us wouldn't mind being a child again for just a little while anyway :) Childhood should be safe and secure. Sadly,it isn't always as it should be! There are those who lived a very insecure and unstable childhood. Their inner child is still there,buried beneath the adult years,clinging and crying out to be held, comforted and loved!
How does this happen? What I begin to be a fun,happy post on this blog...once again turns serious on me as I begin to type words. I too have an inner child with a longing! Maybe that's why I crave these cute little child like images,old vintage toys,sweet old children's books and dolls! If you have been coming here long,then you must know of my love for old baby dolls. I long to make that little girl in me comfortable and at ease. To help her realize that everything is right with the world,she is loved and all is well! And by God's grace...she is!
Thanks for allowing me to share my heart with you.....
