My Inner Child

Do you ever wish you could go back to your childhood? Do you ever want to cry out "I want my mommy!" Sometimes when life becomes a challenge, I would like to flee. I sometimes wish I could crawl up into my mommy's lap and hide my head. But my mommy has gone on to be with the Lord. I'm an adult, my husband and family need me, I have to act like an adult! One way I can still be a child is by enjoying my doll collection. I have never gotten over my love of dolls, I loved them as a child, and I still love them as an adult!
Yesterday I went to Tuesday Morning. I think this is the first time I've ever actually been on a Tuesday Morning! I found this adorable little eight-inch Madame Alexander Victorian doll and decided she needed to come home with me, I haven't bought a doll in a long time, and I needed to feed my inner child.
Isn't she sweet all dressed up in silk! Today I took her to meet my 91-year-old friend, Emma. Even at her age, she loved this doll, she held her for a very long time. I think the little doll took her back to good memories.
Sometimes when life gets to be a challenge we can ease the pain by going back to our childhood to good memories. I'm very grateful to the Lord for giving me simple pleasures such as this to enjoy and share with my friends.
Anyone want to come to my house and play dolls?

Isn't she pretty! You found a little treasure when you bought her. I had a favourite doll when I was little and of course, had my Barbie which I loved.

As an adult, I seem to be enjoying dolls again and have a few porcelain ladies decorating my bedroom. I picked them up at yard sales or thrift stores and seem to be drawn to them these days. Can't explain it so I'll just enjoy having them. :o)

Oh, what a sweet doll in PINK, and with those ringlets!!
I think we need to embrace our inner child sometimes. She is, after all, a part of who we are today.
((((hugs to you)))

Such a beautiful, beautiful doll! I loved your post today. I think we all have times where we need to pay attention to our 'inner child'.

Praying for you. . .

What a beautiful doll. Don't you just love to hold them, I know I do. I don't think we outgrow our love of dolls. I love the saying, "Grandmas are just antique little girls." I don't think we ever outgrow wanting our mom either. Thinking of you and praying for you!

Sandra, I love hearing about other people who love dolls the way I do! Thanks for sharing!
