Day 20/31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes 2017: DISCOVER

Day 20

I love watching my daughter experience new things, and providing new experiences for her to try.  This summer as our crunchy grass needed water, I stuck her feet and hands in front of the sprinkler.  She discovered the tickly pressure of the water between her fingers and toes.  The first time she met grass and sand, she didn’t want to put her hands down, the feel foreign and strange beneath her fingertips.  And then everything started going into her mouth.  Rocks, leaves, random particles left on the floor, and even her toes.  It used to drive me crazy, having to constantly supervise what she was picking up because it inevitably would end up in her mouth.  But she was exploring her world, discovering the tastes, feels, and smells all for the first time.  It is how babies learn, and yeah, boosts their immune system all at once.



About miccahmarie

I got my first Diary when I was 10. I couldn't wait to write in it at night to divulge all of the details of my day onto paper with my turquoise pen. I now find that writing has become therapeutic for me. I need time to think and sort out what is going on inside and often when I'm most emotionally heightened is when I write most creatively. My years of journaling are a compilation of written out prayers as well as lamenting poems. Now as a wife and mother, my perspectives have changed, as I reflect on who I was and who God is making me to be.
