WishCast Wednesday....


Our wishcasting wonder, Jamie has asked us today... "What fun do you wish to have?" As always...right on the money...I posted something like this yesterday.
I get so tied up in all I do..especially in the summer..as an adult...as the breadwinner..the herder of children...the planner..the cleaner..etc etc...I forget that I am ME! That I deserve a bit of fun and childlike silliness...we all do. You would think as I teach young children that this would not be a stretch for me...but seriously sometimes it is..especially in the summer. There is the child in me that just wants to play away the day at the beach..reading..making sand castles and looking for garnets with my kids!! Just nothing much of anything and lots of whatever.


Don't get me wrong...I am blessed to own my own businesses where I can be at home with my kids and have the chance to regroup my schedule for them..I adore that! The freedom to chart my own course..amazing!! But...running your own business means a lot more time and effort. I work on average an easy 60-80+ hours a week. Now granted it is not all one thing and it varies depending on which of three businesses I am talking about..but still..I am focused and not playing. So I guess for this summer...as my own kiddos are here and my daycare kiddos are here all day with me...I want them to see a lighter, silly, fun side of me. I want to relax into a whole lot of whatever and breathe and let work go for a little bit each day...a whole lot on some days. I wish to have summer fun..that is it..I wish to have summer fun!!! Whoot..Let Fly with the lemonade and water fun, art and tie dying!! What fun do you wish to have?
Namaste all, Sarah

I fantasize about what it would be like to have my own business that I run from home and I'm sure it takes much more work than working for someone else. Still, I see the importance of trying to carve out a tiny bit of fun time, especially during the summer months when the kids have so much unscheduled time. As you wish for yourself today, I wish for you as well, Sarah!

As Sarah wishes for herself - so I also wish for her. I love the spray whipped cream picture! It brings back memories .... Where's the squirt guns? I want to chase and spray my kids again!!

Hey, I'm not going to tell you that I wish you get your wish because you know you're on my prayer list all the time.

BUT, I just thought of something and wondering....could you do a tie die bandana for Rory and one for Fiona? I think that would be a blast! And, I could wet them down in cool water and put them on them when it's hot! What do you say?

As Sarah wishes for herself, I wish for her as well. Having lived for many many years with someone who had his own business it is a mixed blessing. You never truly get away from it. Enjoy your summer and be as silly and carefree as you can possibly be. Consider it a gift to yourself and your children.

A day at the beach or a day on the lake would "suit" me well... something about being in the water brings out the child in me along with the fun...

I wish you many moments of blissful summer fun :)

I would also like a carefree, childlike summer, making memories that last.

People don't realize how much work running your business is-- It's practically a 24/7 operation. Keeping balance isn't easy since there's always something to do.

I smiled when I saw the tie-dye! I haven't done that in years. I'm thinking it might be a fun afternoon in Ohio next month when Godson and I visit my new baby niece. I have a ton of young ones that would love this! Thanks for the idea Sarah.

I wish you TONS and TONS of summer fun Sarah!
