Day #74


I watched her get all her My Little Ponies™ toys out and set them up on the blanket on the floor. I sat at the table painting for fun and enjoying every moment of it. My Love was a room away working on this blog.

We all spun in our worlds of creativity and it was a lovely moment. There is a lot of power in creation. In watching what you are doing come to life.

A blonde girl playing with pony figurines on a coloful blanket. I listened to her play. It’s one of my favorite things to do. To listen to her imagination come to life through plastic ponies and dolls. To see her breathe life into her toys and watch where they may go. Today it was a fancy ball thrown by none other than Princess Celestia of course.

My Love calls me into the office. He requests my input about colors and formatting. His eyes lit up as he shows me how he edited a few of our pictures this week.

I study my silly bee that I painted. It’s so little; it’s so trivial. But I painted it… I chose colors and brushes… I worked hard to carefully merge the colors together and add details. and in doing so, I made it mine. I created it.

It was beautiful to watch us all create in our own way. To paint our day, our project, our world as we desired… there truly is so much energy in being creative and so much joy in living a life you have created.
