Take time to remember what you loved to do as a child.
What did you love to do as a child? Pause and remember. This isn’t something you need to race to do; linger. Consider different locations where you could be found as a child—what did you love? Consider food you ate—what did you love? Consider your hobbies—what did you love?
You can use these memories as a starting point to a story, but that isn’t the invitation. The invitation is to bring something you loved as a child back into your life. This is best if childhood love has been absent for a long time.
Savor the enjoyment and remember the bliss of childhood loves.
*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.

Childhood love is still a love as an adult. https://lcinmo.wordpress.com/2020/12/03/memories/
I’m coming back to this prompt!
Sharing my heart in a simple way tonight. I thought the definitions invitation would push me where I needed to go, but it was this one that I needed. . .https://quimbynotramona.wordpress.com/2020/12/04/sos-magic-siblings-are-childhood-loves/
I had such fun with this. https://litbitsandpieces.com/2020/12/03/childhood-loves-memoir-poem/
When I was a child I listened to other people more than to myself. I believed to what they said of who I was, what I needed to do, how I should be and act. Learning to listen to myself has been a good change. My post is not a childhood memoir. It’s just some text that asked to be written.
Sharing the songs of my heart
Some Comfort, Joy, & Gingerbread – Baking with children. Thank you all for your stories over these many months. They nourish and support me. All the blessings of the season to all of you!

lol … does this fit with the prompt? Tangentially for sure, lol, though I did write it as a response to the gratitude prompt of a couple weeks ago. Not sure why it took me so long to write, but no worries. Hope you are all well, and wonderful, and that you enjoy reading my post. Have a fab day!!
Well…not sure this is on time… but sure had fun writing it. XO
Down to the wire, I was determined to write and share a link! https://ruthayreswrites.com/2020/12/09/look/
