out the window

She says being a kid requires thinking time
and staring out of windows is part of that.
Windows are good for observing people too.

One day recently
– free of the usual obligations she has as a friendly child
– She said she stared out of the window all day.
She explained to me that Jesus recommends it.

Loosely Quoted from Anna Horsley

happy birthday Blair!! xoxox
