Why You Should Fly A Kite

Have you watched a Mary Poppins lately?  I hadn't.  It's been probably 5 or 7 years since I watched it, but my daughter wanted to watch it, so we did.  The funny thing is I never realized that the movie is not about Mary Poppins at all until I watched through the eyes of being a parent myself.  As a child, I didn't get why Mary had to leave in the end, but she really had completed the task she came to do: she restored the relationship between the parents (more so the dad, I'm thinking) and the children.  

The parents in the movie were occupied doing "good" things.  The father was often working and the mother was campaigning on the women's suffrage movement--both truly good endeavors.  But somewhere along the way, they forgot to enjoy their life and their family...the very motivation they were doing those things in the first place, I'm sure.

This is my simple reminder to you today: go fly a kite.  Go to the carousel in the park.  Go see the one man band play.  Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make (and enjoy!) your life.
