the simple joy of a homemade fort

For most of you who know me know that now I am officially a child care provider.
I have 5 kids who join us during the week. I know it sounds crazy but honestly I love it.
Right now the two youngest are napping and I made a fort for the older ones.
It is a large sheet spread across 4 chairs.
Simple.
Easy.
And truly the most spectacular thing in these kids eyes.
I truly do not think I have seen these kids having so much fun!
The simple joys of being a child.
Life brings exciting new adventures every moment.
As a children we naturally seem to be excited about everything.
We notice the simple things that make life great.
Why does that change in adulthood?
Does it have to?

A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.  ~Bill Vaughan

Have a wonderfully fun afternoon!

Much love,

Jessica

I am going to be published!

I won a poetry contest!
I submitted my poem “Intuition a winter morning” to the Poetry Institute of Canada, and I recieved a letter today saying my poem is going to be published in their anthology.
My poem was picked to go ahead to the next level, and will be judged this winter. I have the posibilty of winning $500.
I don’t even think that the chance of winning money is the most exciting thing. It is the fact that I will see my poem as a published piece of work.
And here is the soon to be published poem…..
Intuition on a winter morning
Written by: Jessica Kennedy
The cool air fills my lungs
Travelling down to my belly
Deep to my spirit
Deep to my soul
It recharges,
Fills me with fresh clarity
I trust you,
I say
I will listen to you
Believe in you
Love your choice
How can I not?
You know me best
Oh how happy I feel today!
Much Love,
Jessica

Autumn winds

I am ready for fall.

I find that things always seem to go back to ‘normal’ as soon as September comes around.
Summer is fun and eventful, but fall brings a sense of relaxation and calm.
The cool winds begin to cool down our firey busy lives and we chill out.
Autumn winds, I am ready for you.
No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.
~John Donne

Much love,
Jessica
