It’s time for Monday’s Muse with Robin over at Cinnamon and Honey. This is a great weekly event where Robin encourages us to talk about something that’s inspiring us whether it’s music, a book, poetry or just something that got us thinking.
Here is what has been inspiring me this week. Does anyone remember the book The Little Engine That Could? If you have kids there’s a good chance you have the updated new fancy version of this book. But during our recent move I came across my original copy. The one that was mine as a child.
Look at the slightly battered edges of the book. It was well loved and that makes it all the more special to me. On the inside the copyright page is in Roman Numerals. Would anyone care to translate the year for me?
For some reason the next picture was always my favorite page of the book. If it was the smiling faces on the fruit or the milk bottles or just the description of the treats I loved it whenever we would reach this page.
This book teaches kids (and even adults) to never give up. Always believe in yourself and you can accomplish anything. I think that’s a rather fitting thing to have these days.
Do you have an “I think I can” attitude? What is one treasure from your childhood that you have in your house? What treasures from your childhood have you shared with your children?
