P.....Play!

         Play is one of those words whose meaning depends on usage.  A play can be a live performance...i love attending those.  I am partial to musicals, i have seen my favorites many times over.  In our area we have very talented high school students, and they give amazing  presentations. I try to see as many of those as i can.
       Play with a child is  pure joy.  I have been spending a lot of time this week with my soon to be 3 grandson.  His older sister goes to day camp this week.  I don't usually get much alone time with him, and it has been wonderful...pretending to build houses, learning about all the correct names of the little yellow trucks, playing hide and go seek...only he has 1 favorite place to hide.  Today he put on a show for grandma..making up songs and using the play guitar and accordian and piano.  It was so funny and amazing...
    Then there are adult play times.  Where we get to pretend (roll play), or perform or please each other. That pure joy that comes from play should be in all of our lives, whatever type of play we choose to engage in.  Whether your favorite play time is a mix of pain and pleasure, whether it is mostly real or pretend, or if it is just learning to play toy cars, or making chocolate chip cookies with a 2 year old....and being left with very few chips...take some time to PLAY!
