Don’t Forget to Play

When I was a kid, I love dressing up my barbies and playing with my barbie house. And I especially loved it when I mama played with me. It brought me so much joy. Today I got to play on the floor with my little one. We played with playdough and had a blast. We had so much fun, she vacuumed and then she didn’t even fight me to take a bath. Since I’ve started working again, I forgot how important it is to play with my girls. Since we both had so much fun, I hope it will be a reminder to me in the future to be more intentional about about play.

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
