Day 198 - dancing in the rain

one of the greatest things about being a mom
is teaching my kids that it is ok to be silly
& to play outside of the box

when i told the girls we were going to dance in the rain
they were worried about shoes and coats
i said, we don't need them
it's warm outside
let's go stomp in the mud puddles and
dance in the rain

the girls loved it
thought it was the best
and the next time it rained
hailey shouted, "yeah, it's raining. let's go dance"

happy heart, free spirit, spontaneous fun

Day 188 - Hero

i am playing the song Hero's March at my piano recital on 6-4-10
i chose this song because of my love of a good hero

i have loved a good hero "all my life"

today, a hero of mine, told me "you are my hero, i want to be more like you, you inspire me to want to be the best i can be"

the word hero is defined as


–noun,plural-roes; for 5 also -ros.
a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal: He was a local hero when he saved the drowning child.
the principal male character in a story, play, film, etc.
Classical Mythology.
a being of godlike prowess and beneficence who often came to be honored as a divinity.
(in the Homeric period) a warrior-chieftain of special strength, courage, or ability.
(in later antiquity) an immortal being; demigod.

for me, my hero is a friend who has been there for me throughout my life.
when i discovered i was a hero 2
my soul soared~
