Passion- an intense emotion, compelling feeling, enthusiasm, or desire for something. 

Today has been a good day; Caught up with old friends near and far and even made dinner plans with some of them for the upcoming weekend. Nothing like hearing a friend's voice to make your day brighter. Right now, I am just trying to stay as busy as possible.

It's not too hard either with working two jobs. On that note, being a nanny is so rewarding. I never realized how much the kiddos affect my life. I took one of my girls to Purple Glaze today (the others were at cheer camp) and seeing her paint and make her own creation was awesome. She was amazed at all the colors and so submerged in her work. There was a point in time were I just sat back from my painting and watched her. I saw a sparkle in her eyes that touched my heart. Oh, the innocence of a young child, especially a little girl. The excitement she had was impossible to miss. I tried to remember the last time I had that kind of PASSION, that kind of vigor for life... I couldn't come up with much. How sad.. How sad it is that we get so caught up in our day-to-day routines that we lose any sort of excitement for the simple things. 

I want to be that way again. I  don't want to just "go through the motions" anymore. Iwant to have excitement and drive for life. I want to embrace each day for what it's worth. I want to have passion for life.

The Bible says in Matthew 6:21 "because where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
I love how you descibe children and passion because they are one in the same. Find where your treasure is and there is where you will find you passion. And if you dont have a treasure... Then find one :)
