“Super Nana!!” Our five year-old shouts with a smile, as he runs through our kitchen, with his little bear, wonderfully fitted with a custom made, folder paper and masking tape, super hero cape.
I watch him and cannot help but smile, because there is something inside of me that yearns,
To dream like that.
To see things not for what they are,
But for what they could be.
I remember the words of Jesus, “The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”
Such as these…
These that dream.
These that believe.
These that spell words based on what they sound like,
And read people by what they act like.
These that trust.
These that do not allow their world to be defined and limited by what others say it is.
These that define their world by what they can make it.
These that live,
These that make the most of what is around them and run free.
