Princess Camera At The Ready

Ready to get her sheep photos

While travelling in Ireland, my then 2 1/2 year old had her little pink princess camera ready for action at all times.  She had several mini-meltdowns upon learning that she had left it in the car after climbing up a certain long hill, and another time she left it sitting on the wall of a ring fort, requiring the drive back to get her “pictures.” After those two times, we were all diligent to check that camera was in hand.  Her favorite subjects were the sheep of course, and she was upset that they would never look up and pose for the camera.

Which makes me remember my little Fisher Price camera from the late 1960’s….I loved pushing that little yellow button and watching the “flash bulb” move.  And absolutely no worries how the photo turned out….they were all perfect.  😉

Enjoy your camera today, whether it be a phone camera, fancy top of the line model, or a pink plastic one.  Slainte, Lisa

If I Were A Princess

Palm tree

If I were a princess and lived in this tower, I would gaze upon the green surrounding me, watching the waving fronds of the nearby palm tree and happily wile away the hours singing to the nearby birds.

That’s the dream version.  In reality, I would probably be wondering how I was going to manage those steep circular stairs another day, wish for the Prince to come rescue me already, and long for a different view for just a day.

Aren’t we humans funny creatures?  I love to dream, to imagine, to see things sometimes differently than they are.  And that’s ok, because life gets challenging sometimes, and the reality isn’t too fun to look at all the time.  So dream away…big, bold, beautiful dreams.  Slainte, Lisa

Postscript:  I really am a princess….check it out:  “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”  ~1 Peter 2:9

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called the children of God!  And that is what we are!  ~1John 3:1
