I spy joy in Taryn’s 2011 Vision Board
Mom and I have a tradition of creating vision boards each year on New Year’s Day. It’s one of my favorite traditions, and one I stick to closer than a turkey meal on Thanksgiving.
Last year the kids joined in. This year my son was out following his passion riding motorcycles–an equally fitting way to begin anew. Taryn was home and picked up the biggest board she could find, which was 3 to 4 times bigger than the boards mom and I were busily pasting together. She grabbed the jar of markers and quietly began creating her BIG vision for 2011.
After some time I walked by and saw this joyful, loving and empowering vision. And I nearly fell over into a pool of warm, fuzzy happiness.
All on her own, without any encouragement or prodding from me or anyone else, my daughter filled her board with thoughts of love, appreciation and joy. She’s 7. I find that to be pretty incredible. Down right awesome even. Or auesome or asoum, in Taryn-ese.
My cup runneth over.
