Day 12, Sunday: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life...)
I miss the simplicity of childhood.
Before the KNOWINGS of the real world.
I miss crayons and playing outside.
I miss thinking that the world is wonderful,
and happy, and joyous.
I miss silly sleepovers not TALKING about drama.
I miss thinking your best friend would ALWAYS be your best friend.
I miss skinned knees being the only boo-boos.
I miss extra ice cream being a HUGE TREAT not a burden.
I miss my whole family being here on Earth.
I miss thinking I could change the WORLD.
I miss playing dress up and imagining being a grown up.
I miss family bike rides.
I miss life pre-Mean Girls.
I miss my maternal grandmother.
I miss believing in our government.
I miss playing house in the back yard with my sisters.
I miss uninhibited bliss
I miss true I-N-N-O-C-E-N-C-E
