Macathy's amazing wonderful thoughts.

This blog must be written by me,ok I can do that .

K Kathy's blog will be an inspiration to all
A Airing my views for you all.
T Thinking that now all I need is Content.
H Holding your attention for a moment.
Y Yes not as easy as it seems to me.
S So I'll just let it be.

Was going to write about the wonderful world of our young ones.
I have a little eight year old grand daughter,who just loves to get outside go exploring.Yes she dresses in her overalls,gets her back pack on ,puts on her imagination,hat and off she travels into that world of hers in the back yard.
She spends hours at a time I often sit and watch her.She looks at everything so intently,the ants fascinate her for ages,I asked her what she sees in them,she said "Oh I just watch them move nan,see what they find to take home"
Yesterday she found a dead bird she was telling me,but before I could say "don't touch it "she said"I didn't touch it nan I just broke up all these old sticks and covered it up,made a grave for the poor little thing"
She even finds fossils lolo well she thinks they are, has a few very good ones she has washed and cleaned and put them on her windowsill ,along with her other many treasures she has found at the beach.
This world is a fascinating place really ,and at times I forget to look.Having Franny here,she teaches me that the little things are important in life. We need to still have the child within us alive I think.Let them out look around us have some fun just like a child.

    Wonderful blog macathy. I sat here for a few moments trying to put an eight years mind in my head, but found it quite impossible. My mind is not innocent anymore, and I see logic instead of rainbows. However, I not going to give up trying.
    Thanks for making me think of wonderful thoughts.

      A lovely blog mac, and I think the young children do teach us so much as well as us teaching them. I can just recall days on the beach with all the family. my youngest brother filling a pail with the best beach stones and then crying when he dropped the pail and they all fell out…oh, happy memories

    Great blog, Kathy. I like your clever intro. Blog brings back memories of me when I was about eigtht; loved to watch ants. At school I got books about ants and was totally fascinated. Studied them again and again and then in the University. I also had a whole series of books about animals . I have no pets but was fascinated with the world around me and still am.
    Maybe, your grand would like to color or paint or have an ant farm. Education begins at home with real life experience. Do I sound like a teacher. I was and a guidance counselor. Young ones are special and know how to really see and also remind us of our youth.

    Mac, what a lovely blog; I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Please continue to update us all on this adorable grandchild. She sounds wonderfully intrigued with her surroundings and especially, her grandmother. xxx

    Mac, Totally enjoyed your blog. If we all could spend sometime looking at the world through the eyes of a child we would be much happier and enjoy every minute. Watching our grandchildren discovering the wonders of nature and the world around them, is truly a blessing. Thanks again,

    Well my grandson is 22, and I saw the world anew through his eyes when he was a child………I am now seeing parts of the world I have never seen, again through his eyes, writings and pics as he travels through other countries……xx

    Mac , your blogs reminded me when I was a kid. We had an outside toilet and I would stay in there for hours watching the ants moving in and carrying stuff. When the met one another, I wondered what were they saying to one another, was it hello or what they found or where the food was. Thanks Mac for the wondeerful blog and bringing back my childhood memories. Cheers xxx
