Day 64 - Be Creative!

"When you have nothing," I said, "be creative."


She stared at me.  I had no idea whether she was processing what I was saying, or if her thirteen-year-old mind was somewhere else.  Probably on anime.  She gathered her backpack, coat, and school computer.  Gave me a big, solemn hug. Trudged out the door.  I would not see her for a week.


A week later on Monday morning she was curled up on my sofa, reading a book.  Her mother is "essential personnel" -- that means she stays with me on certain weekdays.  I put on the breakfast bacon and potatoes and took care of my morning internet posts.  After I was finished, I walked into the dining room to set the table.


And that's when I found him.


That strange-looking creature made of latex and water.


Mr. Wibbles.


I sat down and laughed so hard I couldn't breathe.  Finally, I said, "What is this?"


She peeked into the dining room and smiled.  "Oh!  That's Mr. Wibbles!  I made him for you!"


"But, what is it?"


She smiled.  "Creativity."



Your Challenge Today:  Make something out of what you think...is nothing!


Peace with the Gods Peace with Nature Peace Within!

Big Hugs
