I usually try not to venture to the mall this time of year due to crazy crowds of people trying to get their holiday shopping done. But I’m glad I broke my tradition this weekend because I found inspiration within those crazy crowds. Among the adults who are on a mission, rushing, and seeking to cross items off the list are other kinds of people who view the holidays differently. They are oblivious to the madness around them, they see magic in anything new, and their imaginations are boundless. Kids, of course!
To see that wide-eyed wonder sparked a smile and reminded me that the simplest of ideas can spread the most happiness. Take these children’s rooms for example. Although they may not be glamorous or practical, they still create an atmosphere of fun, comfort and imagination that will make memories to last a lifetime.
